ARCHIVE - Access to Information Act and Privacy Act Annual Report PDF Version (4,867 KB)

April 1, 2006 to March 31, 2007
Portfolio of Public Safety Canada

Section 72 of the Access to Information Act and Section 72 of the Privacy Act require that the head of every government institution prepare an annual report on the administration of the two Acts. This Annual Report describes how the Portfolio, including Public Safety Canada, administered Access to Information and Privacy responsibilities during fiscal year 2006-2007. The information in this report comes from Public Safety Canada as well as Portfolio agencies.

In total, the Portfolio received 2,797 requests under the Access to Information Act as well as 11,191 requests under the Privacy Act during the period under review. The three agencies within the Portfolio that received the most requests under both Acts were the Correctional Service of Canada, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canada Border Services Agency.

The Portfolio is continuing to improve its performance by revising its administrative procedures where required, and by delivering strategic training sessions for staff aimed at addressing specific areas where the need for improvement was identified. The Portfolio's objective is to position itself to achieve ideal compliance under both Acts.
