Annual Report
Access to Information 2015-2016


Introduction

The Access to Information Act establishes the principle that the general public has the right to access information controlled by federal government institutions, and that exceptions should be limited and specific.

The Annual Report on the Administration of the Access to Information Act is prepared and submitted, in accordance with section 72 of the Act, and covers the period from April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016. The report is tabled in Parliament. 

Administration of the Access to Information Act

By virtue of section 24 of the Access to Information Act, which is a mandatory provision, information collected under the Statistics Act, and protected by section 17 of that Act, cannot be made available to anyone attempting to obtain it using the Access to Information Act. This exception enables the Agency to continue giving a clear and unqualified assurance to its respondents that the confidentiality provisions of the Statistics Act are preserved by the Access to Information Act.

The administration of the access to information legislation within Statistics Canada is the responsibility of the Office of the Chief Statistician of Canada. The Chief of Staff is the Access to Information and Privacy Coordinator for the Agency.

Organization and mandate of Statistics Canada

Statistics Canada's mandate derives primarily from the Statistics Act. The Act requires that the Agency collect, compile, analyze and publish statistical information on the economic, social, and general conditions of the country and its citizens. The Act also requires that Statistics Canada co-ordinate the national statistical system, specifically to avoid duplication in the information collected by government. To this end, the Chief Statistician may enter into joint data-collection or data-sharing agreements with provincial and territorial statistical agencies, as well as with federal, provincial, and territorial government departments pursuant to provisions of the Act.

The Statistics Act specifically requires Statistics Canada to conduct a Census of Population and a Census of Agriculture every five years. The Act also gives the Agency substantial powers to request information for statistical purposes through surveys of Canadian businesses and households. By default, response to Statistics Canada’s surveys is mandatory under the Act; refusal to participate is subject to legal penalties. The Act includes provisions to make participation in data collection voluntary, and Statistics Canada has generally done so with household data collection other than the Census of Population and the Labour Force Survey, as the latter produces key economic data. The Census of Agriculture and most other business surveys are mandatory.

By law, Statistics Canada can also access administrative records, including personal and business tax data, customs declarations, and birth and death records. Such records are critical sources of statistical information that enable the Agency to reduce reporting burden on businesses and individual respondents. Statistics Canada is considered a leader among the world’s statistical agencies in reducing reporting burden by using administrative data.

These mechanisms help Statistics Canada fulfill its commitment to ensuring that Canadians have all the key information on Canada’s economy, society and environment that they require to function effectively as citizens and decision makers in a rapidly evolving world.

Delegation instrument

The delegation instrument exercises the powers and functions of the Minister as the head of a government institution, pursuant to section 73 of the Access to Information Act. The current detailed list of authorities under the Access to Information Act was formally delegated by the Minister of Industry (Appendix A) as of August 2013 and provides full delegated authority to the Chief Statistician of Canada, the Chief of Staff and the Director of Information Management Division.

Resources

The Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Office operates within an allocation of 2.85 persons/year. The Departmental Secretary has been delegated most of the responsibilities. A Senior Access to Information and Privacy Project Manager and a Senior Access to Information and Privacy Project Officer work full-time in the office.

Statistical report

The statistical report provides aggregate data on the application of the Access to Information Act (Appendix B). This information is made public annually in an Info Source Bulletin and is included with the annual report. 

Implementation: Access to information

Access to information requests

During the reporting period, from April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016, Statistics Canada received 146 new access to information requests. In addition, one request was carried forward from the previous reporting period, for a total of 147 requests. Of the total, 144 requests were completed; leaving three to be carried forward to the next reporting period.

Disposition of requests completed during reporting period Total
Fully disclosed 33
Partially disclosed 23
Nothing disclosed 50
No records exist 23
Abandoned 10
Transferred 5
Total 144

Media and the public were the largest client groups, as they represented 95 of the 146 requests that were received during the reporting period.

For 144 of the completed requests, all records were either disclosed in full or in part for 56 requests, the information was fully exempted/excluded for 50 requests, no records existed for 23 requests, 10 requests were abandoned by the requestor and 5 requests were transferred to other departments.

In responding to the formal access to information requests, nearly 11,400 pages were reviewed and over 4,500 pages were released. A total of 48 requestors received information electronically on CD-ROM while 8 received information on paper at their request.

The following table shows the latest three-year trend of the Agency’s processing of access to information requests.

Three-year trend of the Agency’s processing of access to information requests
Fiscal Year Requests Received Requests Completed Number of Pages Processed Number of Pages Released
2015/2016 146 144 11,365 4,542
2014/2015 128 130 9,727 8,398
2013/2014 123 127 17,276 6,521
2012/2013 109 109 13,922 7,502

Types of records requested

The substance of the requests covered the entire range of matters pertaining to Statistics Canada’s role and included:

  • data from statistical programs or background information relating to statistical programs and information on the availability of data from standard CANSIM tables
  • records related to the administration of the Agency (most records were released with minimal exemptions)
  • census information
  • IT security policies, procedures and techniques
  • clients wishing to access their personal information
  • requests from trustees or estate administrators

In these cases, the regulations permit duly authorized representatives to act on behalf of a minor or an incompetent person to administer their affairs or estate. To do so, the trustees and estate administrators seek personal information from the census or from 1940 national registration records of deceased individuals, minors, or dependent adults. In the case of the deceased, the administrator of the estate may exercise these rights, but only for the purposes of estate administration. 

Other requests

From April 1, 2015, to March 31, 2016, Statistics Canada also received 84 Access to Information Act consultation requests from other departments. The Agency was asked to review 1,209 pages of information. The unit processed 84 of the consultation requests this fiscal year and all were completed within 1 to 15 days. One consultation has been carried forward to the next reporting period.  The 84 completed requests represents a 29.2% increase over the previous three year average of 65 completed requests.

Summaries of completed Access to Information Act requests are available on the “Open Government Portal” website. Requests for copies of these completed requests, as well as requests not processed under the Act, are classified as informal requests. This past fiscal year, 84 requests were processed informally, totalling around 10,000 records.

The ATIP Office acted as a resource for Statistics Canada officials, offering advice and guidance on the provisions under the legislation. The office was consulted on the disclosure and collection of data on a wide range of matters, including:

  • publications to be posted on the open government website
  • proactive disclosure on travel and hospitality
  • Management Accountability Framework assessments
  • security of information
  • reviews of audits to be posted on the Internet
  • reviews of parliamentary questions and responses
  • updates to the ATIP internet and intranet sites
  • reviews of and updates to ATIP business practices and procedures

Trends of disposition of completed requests

The disposition of the 144 requests completed in 2015/2016 was as follows:

  • 33 were fully disclosed (23%)
  • 23 were partially disclosed (16%)
  • 50 were exempt in entirety (35%)
  • 5 was transferred to other institutions (3%)
  • 10 were abandoned by applicants (7%)
  • 23 had no existing records (16%)

The total number of completed requests rose this year by 10.8%. This is the third consecutive increase but it does not surpass the peak number of requests (206) completed in 2010/2011.  

Completion time and extensions

The 144 requests completed in 2015/2016 were all processed as prescribed by the Act and all within the time required. Several factors contributed to Statistics Canada’s timely response rate over the past year, including greater oversight at the managerial level, information sessions with officials and sector contacts, and a streamlined delegation order.

The requests were completed as follows:

  • 102 within 1 to 15 days (71%)
  • 30 within 16 to 30 days (21%)
  • 4 within 31 to 60 days (3%)
  • 8 within 61 to 120 days (6%)

Out of the 144 requests processed, an extension was taken in 12 cases either for “Interference with operations of the department,” the need to consult with other federal institutions and/or to consult with Legal Services for Cabinet confidences.  

Exemptions and exclusions invoked

The Access to Information Act allows and in some case requires certain data to not be released. In 2015/2016 the following sections of the Act were invoked: 

Section 16(1)(c) – Records containing information the disclosure of which could reasonably be expected to be injurious to the enforcement of any law of Canada (2)

Section 16(2)(c) – Records containing information on vulnerability of systems, including computer or communications systems (11)

Section 18(a) – Financial information that belongs to the Government of Canada (6)

Section 19 – Records containing personal information (16)

Section 20 – Records containing third-party business information (17)

Section 21 – Records containing information relating to internal decision-making (23)

Section 22 – Records containing information about testing procedures, tests and audits (18)

Section 23 – Information that is subject to solicitor-client privilege (1)

Section 24 – Records that have a statutory prohibition against disclosure (4)

Section 68(a) – Records containing published material or material available for purchase by the public (32)

Section 69 – Cabinet Confidences (24)

Fees

Application fees are applied as described in the Access to Information Act. During the reporting period, $480 was collected in application fees. There were no search fees and no fees were collected for reproduction and preparation time. The Agency waived $240 worth of fees, specifically application fees in cases where the requested information was or was to be published or could have been obtained through a custom data request where fees apply. 

Costs

During 2015/2016, the ATIP Office incurred an estimated $246,396 in salary costs and $3,898 in administrative costs to administer the Access to Information Act.

Training initiatives for Access to information

In 2015/2016, the ATIP Office provided formal instruction to Agency staff on the Access to Information Act. Twelve training sessions were held and over 250 people attended.

At the sessions, participants learned about the Act and gained a better understanding of their ATIP obligations. These sessions were given to divisional and management teams in Administrative Data Division, Collection Planning and Research Division, Operations and Integration Division, Public Sector Statistics Division, Consumer Prices Division, Producer Prices Division, Manufacturing and Wholesale Trade Division and several other individual sections across the Agency.

Policies, guidelines and procedures

The ATIP Office has a variety of tools in place to ensure that ATIP sector contacts are well informed about their roles and responsibilities for coordinating ATIP requests. These tools include checklists on the steps to follow when providing records for access to information requests and on the availability of the ATIP team throughout the process.

In 2015/2016, no new or revised governing instruments related to ATI were implemented at Statistics Canada.

Complaints and investigations

One complaint was lodged against the Agency with the Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada during the current reporting period. The new complaint was about refusal in general. One complaint was carried over and one complaint was re-opened for a total of three.  

One complaint was closed this current fiscal year as it was discontinued by the client. Two complaints are still being examined.

Monitoring of the requests

At Statistics Canada, the ATIP Office processes and monitors requests by registering them in a comprehensive system known as Privasoft – Case Management. An acknowledgment of the request and of the application fee of $5.00 is sent to the client and a retrieval form is forwarded to the relevant program area (Office of Primary Interest (OPI)). If the OPI and/or the ATIP Office need to clarify the request, only the ATIP Office contacts the client, unless prior approval is provided by the client. Client names are always kept confidential.

The retrieval form provided to the OPI was created by the ATIP Office at Statistics Canada and is based upon the Policy on Access to Information and the Directive on the Administration of Access to Information from the Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada. The form includes the text of the request, the name of the ATIP Officer and his/her phone number, and the date by which records are required (normally 5 to 10 days). It is noted on the form that the ATIP Office is required to report annually on the administrative costs related to requests and thus information is needed on the level(s) and group(s) of those involved in the retrieval, the amount of time spent working on the request (this includes time for search, retrieval, internal review (relevant or not to the request) and photocopying). The individuals providing the records are asked to identify any records which may be sensitive in nature (e.g., legal issues, Cabinet confidences, personal information, company information, advice to the Minister), which may require consultations, and/or which may generate media interest. The Director or Director General of the program area sign-off the form.

The ATIP Office assists the program areas with the retrieval of records from day one. As 5 to 10 days are allowed for the retrieval, a follow-up is made on the fifth day. If additional time is required for the retrieval, this is when the program area is to notify the ATIP Office. An additional 1 to 5 days may be granted depending on the amount of work remaining. Once the documents are received from the OPI, the ATIP Office ensures the form is duly completed and that it has been signed by the appropriate manager. The ATIP Office then takes 5 to 10 days to review and process the records. If sensitive issues are identified in the submitted materials, 1-3 days prior to the release of the final version to the client, an e-mail is sent to Communications Division and to any other relevant programs to inform them of the release. The OPI and management are very aware of the importance of ATIP requests.
