WHAT IS THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION AND PROTECTION OF PRIVACY ACT? (the "Act")

As the name suggests, the Act has two main purposes:

1.   FREEDOM OF INFORMATION

To make public bodies more open and accountable by providing the public with a legislated right of access to government records; and 

2.   PROTECTION OF PRIVACY

To protect your right to personal privacy by prohibiting the unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of your personal information by public bodies.
