Information Access and Privacy (FOIPOP)

The Information Management Division provides public access to Department of Education and Early Childhood Development records and information, and protects the privacy of individuals with respect to personal information about themselves held by the Department, in compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPOP Act) and other legislation.

The Act strives for balance between an individual’s right to know and an individual’s right to privacy.

Specific and limited exemptions from disclosure are provided for in the Act to protect against the unreasonable invasion of personal privacy; to prevent unfair advantages occurring in commercial or government transactions; to protect law enforcement activities; and to safeguard the business conducted by government.

Please direct general inquiries to our Information Access and Privacy Coordinator.
