Annual Report on the Administration of the Access to Information Act 2014–2015

April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015

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 2014–2015 fiscal year. This report is tabled in Parliament in accordance with section 72 of the Act.

The Canada School of Public Service is the common learning service provider for the Public Service of Canada. The School has a legislative mandate to provide a range of learning activities to build individual and organizational capacity and management excellence within the public service.

The School has one strategic outcome: Federal public service employees have the common knowledge, skills and competencies to fulfil their responsibilities in serving Canadians.

Established on April 1, 2004, under the Public Service Modernization Act and operating under the authority of the Canada School of Public Service Act (CSPS Act), the School's primary responsibility is to provide a range of learning opportunities and develop a learning culture within the public service.

The School, a departmental corporation, is mandated under the CSPS Act to

  • encourage pride and excellence in the public service;
  • foster a common sense of purpose, values and traditions in the public service;
  • support deputy heads in meeting the learning needs of their organizations; and
  • pursue excellence in public management and administration.

The School supports deputy head accountabilities with respect to leadership and professional development across the public service by identifying organizational needs and designing and delivering high-quality, practical programs that address the key development requirements of public service employees.

Organizational Structure and Access to Information and Privacy Responsibilities

The School's Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) activities are primarily carried out by the ATIP and Parliamentary Affairs Office, which is part of the Strategic Directions, Program Development and Marketing Branch. This unit is led by the Senior Director of the Marketing, Communications and Public Affairs Directorate and is composed of a manager, who is now the School's ATIP Coordinator, two ATIP advisors and an administrative services assistant. The position of manager was created and staffed in 2014–2015 to increase the level of attention provided for these important democratic functions.

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

In addition to its activities related to parliamentary affairs, the responsibilities of the School's ATIP and Parliamentary Affairs Office include the following:

  • processing requests for information submitted under the Access to Information Act and requests for personal information pursuant to the Privacy 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 ATIP legislation as well as promoting awareness and training to School employees;
  • cooperating with the Office of the Information Commissioner and with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner on 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 (classes of records and personal information banks) are published in Info Source;
  • preparing the statistical reports and the annual reports on the administration of the Access to Information Act and on the administration of the Privacy Act; and
  • participating in ATIP community activities, such as the TBS-led ATIP coordinators' and ATIP practitioners' meetings and working groups.

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, Communications and Public Affairs Directorate in July 2014. A copy of the signed delegation instrument for the Act in effect on March 31, 2015 is included in Annex A.

Interpretation of the Access to Information Act Statistical Report 2014–2015

The following outlines the information contained in the Statistical Report on the Access to Information Act for 2014–2015, which is attached as Annex B.

Requests Received Under the Act, Consultations, and Informal Requests

Between April 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015, the School received 30 new requests for information under the Act. The School also had three outstanding requests from the previous reporting period. Twenty-eight requests were completed and five requests were carried over to the next reporting year.

In addition, the School received 20 consultation requests under the Act from other government institutions involving records of potential interest to the School. These consultation requests were completed with a total of 594 pages reviewed. Recommendations were provided within the time set by the consulting government institutions.

The School also received and responded to three informal requests for records that were previously released under the Access to Information Act. In all three cases, the School responded within fifteen days.

Disposition of Completed Requests

Nine requests (32 percent) resulted in full disclosure to the applicant, while in 15 cases (54 percent), some information was withheld. The records qualified for total exemption in one instance (4 percent), and in three cases (11 percent) the requested records did not exist.

Source of Requests Received

The most common source of requests was the business sector, with fifteen requests (50 percent), followed by the general public, with nine requests (30 percent), the media, with five requests (17 percent) and academics, with a single request (3 percent).

Completion Time and Extensions on Completed Requests

Twenty-four requests (86 percent) were processed in 30 days or less. Two requests (7 percent) required up to 60 days to process, and the remaining two requests (7 percent) required more than 60 days.

An extension beyond the initial 30 days is permitted if responding to the request would require a search through a large volume of records and responding within the first 30 days would unreasonably interfere with operations, or if consultations are required. In 2014–2015, the School claimed an extension on two requests. Both extensions were required in order to consult another organization.

During the reporting period, the School was unable to meet its deadline for two requests, representing 7 percent of the requests that were processed. One deadline was missed due to internal consultations, and the other fell into the category of "Other" due to unexpected software difficulties (now resolved).

Exemptions and Exclusions

Exemptions and exclusions are the only grounds to withhold information found in records that are requested under the Access to Information Act. Their application is limited and specific, as stipulated in the Act.

For the requests where an exemption was invoked, the most frequently applied provision was subsection 19(1), which protects personal information pertaining to individuals other than the requester. In very few cases, the School also invoked sections 20, 21 and 22. Section 20 is the provision applied to withhold confidential third-party information; section 21 protects the integrity of the government's decision-making process, including advice, recommendations, deliberations, plans and positions relating to ongoing negotiations; and section 22 protects the integrity of testing and audit procedures.

The Act indicates that certain types of materials are excluded from its application, specifically, records that are already available to the public (section 68) and Cabinet Confidences (section 69). The School did not invoke these exclusions with respect to any requests completed during the reporting period.

Format of Information Released

The School provided records in paper format in eight cases (33 percent) and electronically in response to 16 requests (67 percent).

Relevant Pages Disclosed

A total of 3,109 pages were reviewed by staff during the reporting period, with 2,495 of them resulting in disclosure (in full or in part) to requesters. The remaining 614 pages were withheld pursuant to the Act's exemptions.

*includes requests outstanding from the previous reporting year (return to source paragraph of the note 1)

Fees

The Act authorizes fees for certain activities related to the processing of formal requests. Current fees are specified in the Access to Information Regulations.

The School collected $125 in fees, as permitted by the Act and its regulations, and waived $310 in fees.

Costs

Salary costs related to the administration of the Access to Information Act incurred by the ATIP and Parliamentary Affairs Office are estimated at $89,872. Overhead and maintenance costs are estimated at $5,008 for a total of $94,880.

Training and Awareness

The ATIP and Parliamentary Affairs 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 and Parliamentary Affairs Office responded to inquiries from employees and management, providing advice and guidance on various subjects pertaining to the Act.

In winter 2015, two training sessions on the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act were offered to the School's executives. A total of 35 executives participated in the sessions.

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

New Procedures, Guidelines and Directives

The School did not implement new or revised access to information policies, guidelines or procedures in 2014–2015.

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

Complaints

The School was not notified of any new complaints received by the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) in 2014–2015.

The OIC provided its findings on two complaints regarding the School, one of which was deemed unfounded and the other of which was settled.

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.
