Taking your concerns to the government or a local authority

If you have questions or concerns about access to records or privacy issues in a provincial government institution or a local authority you should first contact the access and privacy officer of that government institution or local authority.  That person may be able to address your concerns.

Taking your concerns to the Information and Privacy Commissioner

If you are not satisfied with the response you receive from the government institution or local authority, you may want to contact the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for additional assistance.

You may request a review of access decisions made by an institution under The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act or a local authority under The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, for example, if there is a:

  • refusal to grant access to all or part of a record;
  • refusal to make a correction to personal information; or
  • an extension of the 30-day deadline.

If the Commissioner reviews the matter and you are still not satisfied, the decision can be appealed to the Court of Queen's Bench.

If there are concerns with the privacy practices of a government institution or local authority, you may ask the Information and Privacy Commissioner to investigate.
