Complaint Process back to main

The Commissioner’s Policy on the Complaint Process is designed to respect the Right to information and Protection of Privacy Act, to encourage both cooperation and transparency, and all the while reaching for a satisfactory resolution for both the applicant and the public body in accordance with the requirements of the Act. Below is an explanation of the distinction between what is referred to as an informal resolution process and a formal complaint investigation more commonly recognized by the public, along with timelines. This Complaint Process is communicated to both the applicant and the public body at the outset of a complaint matter filed with our Office.
