The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP Act) has two main purposes:
The FOIPP Act covers all provincial government public bodies, including government ministries and most government agencies, boards, commissions and Crown corporations. It also covers what is referred to as “local public bodies”, which includes municipalities and regional districts.
The FOIPP Act applies to all records in the custody or under the control of public bodies, including personal information. However, only in exceptional circumstances will access to some else’s personal information be provided. The definition of ‘record’ includes books, documents, maps, drawings, photographs, letters, vouchers, papers and any other thing on which information is recorded or stored by graphic, electronic, mechanical or other means, but does not include a computer program or any other mechanism that produces records.
