Under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP Act), Health Information Act (HIA) and Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA), the Commissioner has the power to conduct investigations to ensure compliance with the legislation. Under the FOIP Act and HIA, the Commissioner may also conduct investigations to ensure compliance with rules relating to the destruction of records. The results of these investigations and recommendations are included in investigation reports.

Investigation Reports are also in the CanLII database, The Canadian Legal Information Institute, at www.canlii.org.
