  • A "Section 70 Decision" is made under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and provides the Commissioner with the ability to refuse to conduct an inquiry. 
  • A "Section 37 Decision" is made under the Personal Information Protection Act and provides the Commissioner with the power to authorize an organization to disregard access requests. 
  • An "Advance Ruling" is made under the Personal Information Protection Act (section 36(3)) where the Commissioner may, on request, give advance rulings in respect of any matters that are or could potentially be the subject of an investigation.
