Right to Know Week

September 28 - October 4, 2015


On August 31, 2015, Commissioner Karen A. Rose issued four orders, all of which deal primarily with subsection 14(1) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, and its exception to disclosure when disclosure would be harmful to business interests of a third party. In each case, Commissioner Rose found that the information at issue did not satisfy the required elements of subsection 14(1) to warrant a refusal to access information. In Order No. FI-15-002, Commissioner Rose ordered that the record(s) be disclosed to the Applicant. Order No. FI-15-003, Order No. FI-15-004, and Order No. FI-15-005, each result from a third party request for the Commissioner to review a decision of a public body to disclose the record(s) at issue. The Commissioner upheld all three of the public bodies’ decisions to disclose the record(s) to the applicants.
