DID YOU KNOW THAT . . .
The 2014 Annual Report of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for the Province of Prince Edward Island has been tabled and may be accessed online. Former Commissioner Maria C. MacDonald reports, "During 2014, the OIPC received 25 new requests for review, increasing the total reviews of the office to 55. The new reviews included three privacy complaints and 22 requests to review a decision of a public body on access to information requests." Five decisions were issued by Commissioner MacDonald and are briefly summarized in the report, but can be accessed at the 'Rulings' link below. Printed copies of the annual report are available at this office and can also be obtained at Island Information Services.
The Access and Privacy Services Office is a section of the Justice Policy and Privacy Services Division of the Department of Justice and Public Safety of the Government of Prince Edward Island. It processes applications for access to information and provides government-wide policy advice and support regarding the operation of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act ("FOIPP Act") and regulations, policies and procedures.
Contact the Provincial Manager, Kathryn Dickson, to submit requests for access to information from the provincial government and for assistance with the FOIPP Act.
Requests for information in the custody and control of certain public bodies are not processed through the Access and Privacy Services Office. Contact information for some of the FOIPP coordinators of these public bodies can be found under the following link to the Access and Privacy Services Office website:
