The Information Commissioner filed an application for judicial review in Information Commissioner of Canada v. Toronto Port Authority

On June 20, 2014, the Information Commissioner of Canada filed a notice of application against the Toronto Port Authority (TPA) pursuant to section 42 of the Access to Information Act (Act). The investigation by the Office of the Information Commissioner determined that TPA’s decision to withhold access to a requested record was not justified, and that the complaint was well-founded. The Information Commissioner further recommended to release the record in its entirety. The TPA refused based on claims that it contained commercial and financial information the release of which would prejudice its competitive position.  

This application is made with the consent of the complainant.
