Annual Report to Parliament on the Access to Information Act 2013–2014

April 1, 2013 to March 31, 2014

Table of Contents


Introduction

The Access to Information Act (Revised Statutes of Canada, Chapter A-1, 1985) was proclaimed on July 1, 1983, giving Canadian citizens and permanent residents the right to access information contained in government records, subject to certain specific and limited exceptions.

The Access to Information Act (the Act) gives Canadian citizens, as well as people and corporations present in Canada, the right to access federal government records that are not of a personal nature. The Act complements, but does not replace, other procedures for obtaining government information. It is not intended to limit, in any way, the access to government information that is normally available to the public upon request.

This annual report describes how the Canada School of Public Service (the School) administered its responsibilities under the Act during the 2013-2014 fiscal year. This report is tabled in Parliament in accordance with section 72 of the Act.

The School is part of the Treasury Board portfolio. The School's enabling legislation is the Canada School of Public Service Act, under which it is mandated to

  • encourage pride and excellence in the public service;
  • foster a common sense of purpose, values and traditions in the public service;
  • support the growth and development of public servants;
  • help ensure that public servants have the knowledge, skills and competencies they need to do their jobs effectively;
  • support deputy heads in meeting the learning needs of their organizations; and
  • pursue excellence in public management and administration.

This mandate is delivered through four programs: Foundational Learning, Organizational Leadership Development, Public Sector Management Innovation and Internal Services.

The School ensures that public servants have the common knowledge and the leadership and management competencies they require to fulfil their responsibilities in serving Canadians.

Delegation of Authority

For the purpose of the Act, the Deputy Minister/President of the School delegated full authority to the Senior Director of the Marketing and Communications Division and the Vice-President of the Strategic Directions, Program Development and Marketing Branch. A copy of the signed delegation instrument for the Act is included in Appendix B.

Organizational Structure of the ATIP Office and its Responsibilities

The Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Office is part of the Strategic Directions, Program Development and Marketing Branch. It is composed of one senior director, who acts as the ATIP Coordinator for the School, and two ATIP advisors. In an effort to comply with the requirements of the Access to Information Act, one junior ATIP officer was assigned to the ATIP Office to support activities related to access to information.

The ATIP Coordinator is responsible for daily activities related to the administration of the Act.

The responsibilities of the School's ATIP Office include

  • processing access to information requests submitted under the Act in accordance with legislation, regulations and Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) policies and guidelines;
  • responding to consultations received from other government institutions and organizations;
  • providing advice and guidance to requesters on the application of the Act as well as promoting awareness and training to School employees;
  • assisting the Office of the Information Commissioner in the resolution of complaints;
  • reviewing departmental documents prior to their proactive disclosure on the School's Web site;
  • ensuring that the School's information holdings are published in Info Source;
  • preparing the statistical report (included in Appendix A of this report) and the annual Access to Information Act report to Parliament; and
  • participating in ATIP community activities, such as the TBS ATIP practitioners' community meetings and working groups.

Section 71 of the Access to Information Act requires government institutions to provide facilities where the public may inspect manuals used by employees of the institution in administering or carrying out programs or activities of the institution that affect the public. In accordance with this section, the School has a library designated as a public reading room. It is made available to the public upon request. The library is located at the following address:

Asticou Campus
241 de la Cité-des-Jeunes Boulevard, Room 1359
Gatineau, Quebec
K1N 6Z2

Interpretation of the Access to Information Act Statistical Report 2013-2014

Requests Received under the Act

Between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014, the School received 30 new requests for information under the Act. The School completed 27 requests and 3 requests were carried over to the next reporting year.

In addition, the School received 16 new consultation requests under the Act from other government institutions involving School records and 1 request was outstanding from the previous year. All 17 consultation requests were completed with a total of 507 pages reviewed. Recommendations were provided within the time set by the consulting government institution.

Disposition of Completed Requests

  • Disclosed in full – 11
  • Disclosed in part – 11
  • No records exist – 2
  • Request abandoned – 2
  • Treated informally – 1

Source of Requests

  • Media – 6
  • Academia – 1
  • Businesses – 6

  • Completed between 16 to 30 days – 14
  • Completed between 31 to 60 days – 4
  • Completed between 61 to 120 days – 2

Section 9 of the Act provides for the extension of the statutory time limits if consultations are necessary or if the request is for a large volume of records and processing the request within the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the organization.

Of the 27 requests closed during this reporting year, 23 were completed within allowable time limits. In two instances, the School found it necessary to seek extensions of 30 days or less to the prescribed time limits to allow time to consult with other government institutions.

In four instances, the School did not meet its legislative deadline. In one of these instances, an extension of 30 days or less had been applied.

Exemptions and Exclusions

This section of the Statistical Report is intended to identify the number of requests in which specific exemptions or exclusions were invoked. If the same exemption or exclusion is claimed several times for the same request, it is reported only once.

Subsection 19(1) (personal information) was invoked 11 times and was applied to the information that is considered personal to another individual and where individual consent was not obtained. Paragraphs 20(1) (a) (b) (d) (third party information) were invoked in three cases.

No exclusions were invoked under the Act.

Format of Information Released

12 requests were released on paper and 10 were released in electronic format.

Relevant Pages Disclosed

A total of 1,726 pages were disclosed in full and a total of 2,475 pages were disclosed in part, for a total of 4,201 pages, in comparison to the 8,972 pages released in 2012–2013.

Fees

The Act authorizes fees for certain activities related to the processing of formal requests. In addition to a $5 application fee, search, preparation and reproduction charges may apply to various records. Current fees are specified in the Access to Information Regulations. No fees are imposed for reviewing records or for overhead shipping costs, and in accordance with section 11 of the Act, no fees are charged for the first five hours required to search for a record or prepare any part of the record for disclosure.

The fees collected during the reporting period totalled $320, of which $58 was refunded or waived.

Costs

Salary costs related to the administration of the Access to Information Act incurred by the ATIP Office are estimated at $81,928. Overhead and Maintenance costs are estimated at $9,521 for a total of $91,449.

Training and Awareness

The ATIP office continually works to inform and guide employees and requesters regarding the requirements of the Access to Information Act by means of ongoing dialogue and informal discussions. During the reporting period, the employees of the ATIP office responded to inquiries from employees and management, providing advice and guidance on various subjects pertaining to the Act.

In November 2013, two training sessions on the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act were offered to School employees. A total of 30 employees participated in the sessions.

A dedicated section on the School's intranet Web site provides School employees and ATIP liaison officers with key information on ATIP.

New Procedures, Guidelines and Directives

During the reporting year, the School did not implement new and/or revised access to information policies, guidelines or procedures.

The School continues to post summaries of completed access to information requests on its Internet site, a practice begun in April 2011 as part of the Open Government initiative.

Complaints

The investigation of one outstanding complaint (OIC file # 3212-00941) from fiscal year 2011–2012 is ongoing with the Office of the Information Commissioner. The requester alleged that the School had improperly applied exemptions so as to unjustifiably deny access to records, or portions thereof.

During the current reporting year, one complaint was filed against the School (OIC file # 3213-02060). The requester complained that the School failed to respect its duty-to-assist obligations under the Act. This investigation is ongoing with the Office of the Information Commissioner.

Monitoring Time of Process

Since the School is a small institution with a relatively low number of requests in comparison to other institutions, the Vice-President of the Strategic Directions, Program Development and Marketing Branch is kept informed of time to process access to information requests by means of a monthly report and through ongoing verbal briefings.
