Notice under subsection 30(5), 2021 OIC 19
The Information Commissioner ceased an investigation, pursuant to paragraph 30(4)(b) of the Access to Information Act.
Paragraph 30(4)(b) allows the Commissioner to refuse or cease to investigate a complaint when, having regard to the circumstances, initiating or continuing the investigation is unnecessary.
In this instance, the Office of the Information Commissioner received a complaint alleging that the complainant did not receive the documents in response to their access request in French.
During the investigation, the institution had the documents translated and sent them to the complainant. In these circumstances, continuing the investigation is unnecessary because the complainant has now received the documents in the official language of their choice.
