Freedom of Information

Welcome to the Women’s College Freedom of Information page.  Here you will find information you need to understand the role that the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) plays here at WCH.

Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) is twofold in its mandate.  First it provides a right of access to information under the control of government organizations in accordance with the following principles:

  • information should be available to the public;
  • exemptions to the right of access should be limited and specific; and
  • decisions on the disclosure of government information may be reviewed by the Information and Privacy Commissioner.

Secondly, the Act protects personal information held by government organizations and provides individuals with a right of access to their own personal information.
