FIPA’s access rights resource uses the Province of British Columbia as the primary framework. Each Province and Territory has individual variations on these based on their own laws and oversight.
Our goal is to add more detailed information for other provinces and territories in the future. You can help us expand these resources if you donate to our research.
In the meantime, please see the following resources for FOI and privacy information for other provinces and territories adapted from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s “Provincial and territorial privacy laws and oversight” page.
