Reasons for FOIP

The two main objectives of the FOIP Act are:

- to ensure that public bodies are open and accountable to the public by providing a right of access to records; and

- to protect the privacy of individuals by controlling the manner in which public bodies collect, use and disclose personal information.

These are further explained in Section 2 of the Act, setting out the following purposes of the Act:

  1. To allow any person access to general records in the custody or under the control of a public body (in this case, NAIT), subject to limited and specific exceptions as set out in sections 16 to 29 of the Act.
  2. To control the manner in which the public body may collect personal information from individuals; to control the use that the public body may make of that information; to control the disclosure by the Institute, of that information and to protect that personal information while in the custody and control of the public body.
  3. To allow individuals, subject to limited and specific exceptions as set out in the Act, a right of access to personal information about themselves that is held by the public body.
  4. To allow individuals a right to request corrections to personal information about themselves that is held by the public body.
  5. To provide for the independent review of decisions made by the public body under this Act and the resolution of complaints under this Act.
