The Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 2015 (ATIPPA, 2015) gives the public a right to access House of Assembly records.
Although many House records are accessible through this Act, there are certain exceptions such as personal or constituency records of a Member of the House of Assembly and records of a registered political party or caucus, as defined in the House of Assembly Accountability, Integrity and Administration Act. The latter are exempt except for review by the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner and subject to Parliamentary Privilege.
There may also be other restrictions and exceptions with respect to access to records as outlined in Part II Division 2, of the ATIPPA, 2015.
The House of Assembly and the Statutory Offices protect personal information under the provisions of ATIPPA, 2015. Part III of the Act outlines how personal information is to be collected, used and disclosed.
Please note: This information is for those submitting an access request to the House of Assembly.
Should you wish to submit an access request to the Executive Branch of government (departments), you will find the appropriate Coordinator on the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Office website.
