Annual Report on the Administration of the Access To Information Act from April 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013

1. Introduction

This report to Parliament, prepared and tabled in accordance with section 72 of the Access to Information Act,Footnote 1 describes the activities of the Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada (OIC) in administering the Act during 2012–2013.

The purpose of the Act is to protect the public’s right to access records under the control of government institutions, while ensuring that the use of any exemptions and exclusions is limited and specific. The Act also specifies that any decisions on the disclosure of information should be reviewed independently of government. To this end, the OIC was established under the Act in 1983 as an independent oversight body reporting to Parliament. The OIC conducts efficient, fair and confidential investigations into complaints about government institutions’ handling of access to information requests. The goal of our work is to maximize compliance with the Act while fostering disclosure of public sector information.

The OIC became subject to the Act in 2007. Since then, we have made every effort to provide exemplary service to requesters. Here are some highlights from 2012–2013:

  • We completed formal requests in an average of 30.4 days.
  • We continued to waive the $5 application fee for access requests.
  • To maximize disclosure, we now, when appropriate, informally release to individuals seeking information about investigations into their own complaints a copy of any record they provided to us as part of the investigation (subject to any exemptions) and which we otherwise must formally withhold.

Requesters who are of the view that our office improperly handled their access request are entitled to file a complaint. To prevent any conflict of interest and to ensure the integrity of the complaint process, an independent Information Commissioner ad hoc investigates complaints regarding access requests submitted to the OIC. John Sims, the Commissioner ad hoc since May 2011, is assisted by an investigator and has the same powers and obligations as the Information Commissioner with respect to conducting investigations and making recommendations in relation to access requests made to the OIC.

  • During the reporting period, two complaints were filed with the Commissioner ad hoc. The investigations into both complaints are ongoing.

2. Organization

The Information Commissioner, Suzanne Legault, is supported by the Assistant Commissioner, Complaints Resolution and Compliance, the Director General, Corporate Services, and the General Counsel, Legal Services.

The OIC has three branches, as follows:

  • The Complaints Resolution and Compliance Branch carries out investigations and dispute resolution efforts to resolve complaints. It assesses the performance of government institutions and conducts systemic investigations.
  • Legal Services represents the Commissioner in court cases and provides legal advice on investigations, as well as legislative and administrative matters.
  • Corporate Services provides strategic and corporate leadership for various functions, such as communications, human resources, and information management and technology. It also manages the access to information and privacy function.

The Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Secretariat processes all requests under the Access to Information Act for records under the control of the OIC. The ATIP Secretariat had two staff members in 2012–2013:

  • The Director, ATIP Secretariat, manages the Secretariat, including overseeing request administration, policy development and training. The Director holds full delegated authority under the Act as ATIP Coordinator. The Director reports to the Director General, Corporate Services.
  • The ATIP Officer processes requests and holds some delegated authority, such as for transferring requests to other institutions, claiming time extensions, charging fees and notifying third parties about requests. The ATIP Officer reports to the Director, ATIP Secretariat.

3. Delegation order

Under the Access to Information Act, the Information Commissioner is the designated head of the institution for the purpose of administering the legislation.

During the reporting period, the delegation under section 73 of the Act, signed on July 16, 2011, was in effect (Appendix A).

The delegation for the Information Commissioner ad hoc under subsection 59(1) of the Act was renewed and signed on May 2, 2012 (Appendix B).

4. Interpretation of the statistical report

The statistical report details all aspects of the processing of access to information requests received by the ATIP Secretariat from April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013 (Appendix C). Below are some items of note from that report.

4.1 Workload 

Requests Number (% of total)
Received during reporting period 44 (88%)
Carried forward from previous year 6 (12%)
Total 50 (100%)

We received 44 new requests in 2012–2013, 4 fewer than in the previous reporting period. The number of pages reviewed totalled 27,083, compared to 25,187 in 2011–2012, an increase of 7.5 percent.

Of the 44 new requests, 17 pertained to investigations, 11 to administrative records and 15 to records on various other subject matters. One request was transferred to another institution.

With 6 requests outstanding from the previous period, we processed a total of 50 requests in 2012–2013. We carried no requests over into 2013–2014.

4.1.1 Requests for previously released records

Interested people can review summaries of all completed requests on our website and then ask to receive a copy of the records. We received four such requests in 2012–2013, compared to 19 in the previous year.

4.2 Sources of requests

Source Number of requests
(% of total)
Media 4 (9%)
Academia 0 (0%)
Business 8 (18%)
Organization 0 (0%)
Public 32 (73%)
Total 44 (100%)

During the reporting period, the majority of the new requests we received (73 percent) came from the public. No requests were received from academia or from organizations.

4.3 Disposition of completed requests

Disposition Number (% of total)
All disclosed 3 (6%)
Disclosed in part 24 (48%)
Nothing disclosed 4 (8%)
No records exist 8 (16%)
Transferred 1 (2%)
Abandoned 10 (20%)
Total 50 (100%)

We disclosed part of the information sought in almost half (48 percent) of all of the requests to which we responded in 2012–2013. A large portion of requests was either abandoned (20 percent) or yielded no records (16 percent).

The percentage of requests with the disposition “disclosed in part” has remained stable over the past couple of years. However, the percentage of requests with the disposition “all disclosed” has decreased, likely reflecting the recent increase in requests for our investigation files, parts of which we must withhold under the Act.

Of the 27,083 pages we processed, we only completely withheld 209, less than 1 percent of the total.

*Note: Since one request can involve more than one exemption, this column totals more than the 50 requests we completed in 2012–2013.

The most frequently invoked exemption during the reporting period was paragraph 16.1(1)(c) (investigations). We applied this to 42 percent of requests, compared to 30 percent the year before. This increase is a result of our receiving more requests for our investigation files than previously.

We also applied subsection 19(1) to 34 percent of requests (compared to 32 percent in the previous year), and section 23 to 30 percent of requests (compared to 9 percent in the previous year). The latter increase is in part due to the growing support our Legal Services team provides to investigators.

Section 16.1(1) exempts from release records containing information that was either obtained or created during investigations, audits or examinations conducted by four Agents of Parliament, including the Information Commissioner (paragraph 16.1(1)(c)), or under their authority. As a result, when we receive a request for records pertaining to an ongoing investigation, we are required to withhold the entire file. When the request is for the files of an investigation that is closed, however, and for which there are no ongoing proceedings, this exemption is partially lifted; it can no longer be applied to records created by the Information Commissioner but is permanently maintained for all records obtained from another institution or from the complainant.

4.5 Exclusions

In one instance this year, we excluded under paragraph 68(a) a record from disclosure, since it was a copyrighted, published work already available for purchase elsewhere.

4.6 Completion times

Period Number (% of total)
1 to 15 days 25 (50%)
16 to 30 days 16 (32%)
31 to 60 days 2 (4%)
61 to 120 days 3 (6%)
121 to 180 days 4 (8%)
Total 50

For the fourth consecutive year, the ATIP Secretariat responded to a large majority (82%) of requests within the 30-day legislated time frame. Notably, we responded to half of our requests within 15 days. No requests were overdue (known as deemed refusals) at any point.

4.7 Extensions

Reason 30 days or fewer 31 days or more Total
(% of total)
Searching for and through a large volume of records 0 5 5 (50%)
Inter-institution consultations 3 1 4 (40%)
Third-party consultations 0 1 1 (10%)
Total 3 7 10 (100%)

We took a total of ten extensions in 2012–2013 for nine requests. In one case, we took two extensions for one request—one to consult with other institutions and the second to consult with third parties.

4.8 Translations

No translations of records were requested during the reporting period.

4.9 Method of access

Out of the 27 releases we delivered in 2012–2013, we provided only one on paper; we sent out the rest on CD. We did not receive any requests to examine records at our office. 

4.10 Fees

Type of fee Amount
Application 0
Reproduction 0
Total $0
Fees waived Frequency Amount
Up to $25 44 $220
More than $25 0 0
Total 44 $220

Conscious of our duty to assist requesters and to ensure there are no barriers to access, we continued to waive the $5 application fee for all access requests. We have found that this has not had any significant impact on our workload in the past three years we have decided not to charge this fee.

4.11 Consultations

We received 17 requests from other institutions to provide input on records that concern our office. However, since we may be required to investigate complaints on any file, we do not provide recommendations on the application of exemptions. This allows us to maintain impartiality and avoid conflicts of interest.

We consulted 64 institutions regarding four requests we received.

4.12 Costs

Category of cost Amount
Salary $108,349
Administration (operations and management) $9,265
Total $117,614
Person-years 1.71

Costs incurred during the reporting period are calculated based on the salaries of ATIP Secretariat members and expenses associated with the administration of the Act.

4.13 Duty to assist

We continue to make every effort to fulfill our duty to assist requesters. Here are some examples of how we put this duty into action in 2012–2013:

  • When the wording of requests could have resulted in limited or no disclosure, we promptly contacted requesters for clarification and to afford them an opportunity to modify the request.
  • We offer to provide paper copies instead of electronic ones to requesters who do not have computer access.
  • We release records not subject to consultations at the time we take time extensions, so requesters can get some of the information they are seeking as soon as possible.
  • We release records via e-mail when possible.

5. Changes to the organization, programs, operations or policies

To further meet our duty to assist, the ATIP Secretariat adopted a practice in 2012–2013 to better serve individuals seeking access to records pertaining to the investigation of their own complaints. In addition to our formal response, we now issue a subsequent informal release containing the correspondence and documents the complainants had sent to the OIC during the course of the investigation. For the formal release, these records would have been withheld under paragraph 16.1(1)(c).

6. Education and training

In January 2013, the ATIP Secretariat conducted an awareness session on the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act, with roughly 20 employees (22 percent of our staff) in attendance. The session focused on topics such as access to information and privacy guidelines, the procedure for processing requests and the responsibilities of subject-matter experts when helping to respond to requests.

Legal Services provided training on subsection 19(1) (personal information) of the Access to Information Act to about 25 employees in November 2012. This was followed by a session in January 2013 on section 23 of the Act (solicitor-client privilege), in which approximately 30 employees participated.

7. Complaints

Two complaints were lodged with the Information Commissioner ad hoc against our office in 2012–2013. One complaint deals with the duty to assist, while the other one concerns the application of paragraph 16.1(1)(c). The investigations into both complaints are ongoing.

8. Conclusion

The OIC is in a unique position, since we are subject to the statute that we oversee. Despite the small size of our ATIP Secretariat and the low number of requests we receive, compared to other institutions, we strive to lead by example in compliance with the Access to Information Act.

We have noticed trends in the type of information being requested, such as a high proportion of requests for records relating to our investigation files. This has increased our reliance on paragraph 16.1(1)(c). As always, however, we strive to foster transparency while observing the mandatory provisions of the Act.
