DID YOU KNOW THAT . . .

For third parties, there is a strict limitation period for requesting a Review by the Commissioner.  Clause 61(2)(b) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act states that a request for a review of a decision of the head of a public body shall be delivered to the Commissioner within 20 days from the date the third party was notified of the public body’s decision.

The Commissioner does not have the ability to extend the time period for a third party to deliver a request for a review.  Once the 20 days have expired, the public body is entitled to carry out its decision, which may involve disclosing third party information.

If the third party’s request for review is delivered to the Commissioner by mail, it is highly recommended that the third party contact the office to confirm receipt within the legislated time frame. If time is of the essence, the third party may contact the Commissioner to discuss an alternative mode of delivery.
