Two Changes in the Rules of Procedure

December 13, 2022 - Ron Kruzeniski, Information and Privacy Commissioner

When my office finalizes a Report, we send it to many people. Recently we realized that those that are interested have two ways of being alerted about our Reports.

First, they can sign up for our RSS feed and each time something is added to our home page, they will receive an email. That would include each new Report that we post.  Second, if one signs up to follow us on Twitter, we tweet every new Report that is posted to our website. So, knowing those interested have a way to access our new Report, we have amended our rules so that we email the Reports to the applicant, public body and third party.

Second, we have recognized that the responses under section 7 of The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIP) and The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (LA FOIP) and section 36 of The Health Information Protection Act (HIPA) are decisions of the head. Rather than calling them letters or responses we have changed to calling them “decisions”.

You can find the amended Rules of Procedure here.

Finally, we have updated the Guide to Submissions to reflect changes we have made over the summer and fall. You can read the amended Guide here.
