An inquiry may be conducted if a matter cannot be settled through mediation or investigation under all three Acts. A formal, binding order is made at the conclusion of an inquiry.
The legislated authority for conducting an inquiry exists under section 69(1) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP Act), section 77(1) of the Health Information Act (HIA) and section 50(1) of the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). Section 72(1) of the FOIP Act, section 80(1) of the HIA and section 52(1) of PIPA then provides the authority for the Commissioner to issue a formal order.
Commissioner's Orders are listed by year and are posted shortly after they are issued to the applicants and respondents. Orders are also in the CanLII database, The Canadian Legal Information Institute, at www.canlii.org.
Note: The search function for the table is limited to the content in the table, such as body name and summary. It does not scan all PDFs. However, the general search function in the top navigation of the website scans PDFs during a search.
On April 1, 2015, the OIPC discontinued its practice of publishing news releases for each order issued. In addition to the website, orders are available on online databases and distributed via Twitter (@ABoipc).
Although we make every effort to ensure that all information posted on our website is accurate and complete, we cannot guarantee its integrity. If there is any discrepancy between the information posted on our website and the original paper versions, the original paper document is authoritative.
