DID YOU KNOW . . . ?
The Information and Privacy Commissioner does not disclose records. If the Commissioner decides records should be disclosed, the Commissioner is not the one who physically gives the records to the Applicant. The Commissioner does not have the power to disclose the records, but has the power to Order the Public Body to provide access to the applicant.
The Access and Privacy Services Office (APSO) 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 all processed through the Access and Privacy Services Office. The link below offers contact information of employees with these public bodies who may direct you on FOIPP matters:
