Access to Information and Protection of Privacy

2. Access to information requests

To request access to information held by a public body or to request a correction of personal information, please follow these steps:

  • Consult the Access and Privacy Directory to get contact information for the Access and Privacy Coordinator at the department or other public body responsible for the information. Your request should be sent to this person. If you have a request for more than one public body, you will need to send a request to each of them.

  • To request access to information, submit a letter or completed form identifying the information you wish to access.

  • To request a correction of personal information, submit a letter or completed form identifying the information you wish to have corrected.

  • Make sure that you sign the letter or form and provide your name, address, and a telephone number in case there are questions about your request.

  • Send the completed request form or letter and the initial fee (if required) to the Access and Privacy Coordinator of the public body you believe has the information. Information on fees is available in the Information Request Payment Form.

  • The Access and Privacy Coordinator at the department or public body will contact you to follow up on the request. They may require an application fee, or more information to clarify your request. Typically a request will be responded to within 30 days. In some cases, more time may be needed to process your request and the Coordinator will advise you of when the response will be provided.

  • If you have questions about your request contact the Coordinator at the department or public body.

  • If you have general questions about the ATIPP Act or how to make a request, please contact (867) 767-9256 extension 82477.
