The Access to Information Act (Revised Statues of Canada, Chapter A-1, 1985) was proclaimed on July 1, 1983. It was amended as a result of the royal assessment of the Federal Accountability Act on December 12, 2006. Certain provisions came into force on December 12, 2006, and others took effect on April 1 and September 1, 2007.
The Access to Information Act (the Act) gives Canadian citizens and individuals present in Canada a broad right of access to information contained in government records, subject to certain specific and limited exceptions.
Section 72 of the Act requires that the head of every federal government institution prepare an annual report, for submission to Parliament, on the administration of the Act within the institution. Every report shall be laid before each House of Parliament within three months after the financial year in respect of which it is made or, if that House is not then sitting, on any of the first 15 days next thereafter that it is sitting.
This annual report provides a summary of the management and administration of the Act within the Public Service Commission of Canada (PSC) for the fiscal year 2012-2013.

Part I — General Information on the Public Service Commission*
1.1 Raison d'être and Mandate
The Public Service Commission (PSC) is dedicated to building a public service that strives for excellence. We protect merit, non-partisanship and the use of both official languages, while ensuring respect for the values of fairness, access, transparency and representativeness.
We recruit talented Canadians to the public service. We continually renew our recruitment services to meet the needs of a modern and innovative public service.
On behalf of Parliament, the PSC safeguards the integrity of staffing and the non-partisan nature of the public service. In this respect, the PSC works closely with government but is independent from ministerial direction and is accountable to Parliament.
The PSC is mandated to:
- Administer the provisions of the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA) that are related to the political activities of employees and deputy heads;
- Oversee the integrity of the staffing system and ensure non-partisanship. This oversight role includes maintaining and interpreting data on the public service, carrying out audits that provide assurance and make recommendations for improvements and conducting investigations that can lead to corrective action in the case of errors, omissions, improper conduct, fraud and political influence in staffing or improper political activities of public servants; and
- Appoint, or provide for the appointment of, persons to or from within the public service. This has been delegated to departments and agencies. The PSC provides staffing and assessment functions and services to support staffing in the public service.
1.2 Strategic Outcome and Program Activity Architecture
The PSC Program Activity Architecture consists of one strategic outcome and four program activities.
*This section is based on the 2012-2013 Public Service Commission of Canada Report on Plans and Priorities.
|Government of Canada Spending and Outcome Area||Government Affairs|

Program Activity 1.1.0
Appointment Integrity and Political Impartiality
The Appointment Integrity and Political Impartiality activity is focused on independently safeguarding merit and non-partisanship in the federal public service. This activity includes developing and advancing strategic policy positions and directions; conducting policy research; establishing PSC policies and standards; providing advice, interpretation and guidance; administering delegated and non-delegated authorities, administering the political activities regime and the mobility provisions.
Program Activity 1.2.0
Oversight of Integrity in Staffingand Non-Partisanship
The Oversight of Integrity in Staffing and Non-Partisanship activity provides an accountability regime for the implementation of the appointment policy and regulatory framework for safeguarding the integrity of public service staffing and ensuring that staffing is free from political influence. This activity includes monitoring departments' and agencies' staffing performance and compliance with legislative requirements, conducting audits and studies, carrying out investigations and reporting to Parliament on the integrity of public service staffing.
Program Activity 1.3.0
Staffing Assessment and Services
The Staffing and Assessment Services activity develops and maintains systems that link Canadians and public servants seeking employment opportunities in the federal public service with hiring departments and agencies. It provides assessment-related products and services in the form of test development and research, consultation, assessment operations and counseling for use in recruitment, selection and development throughout the federal public service. This activity also includes delivering staffing services, programs and products to all Canadians through client service units located across the country.
Program Activity 2.1.0 – Internal Services
The Internal Services Program activity, typically referred to as "Corporate Services," enables the PSC to operate more efficiently and effectively. At the PSC, consistent with other government departments and agencies, Internal Services consists of three sub-activity groups – governance and management support, comprised of governance, communications and legal services; resource management services, including human resource management, financial management, information management, information technology, travel and other administrative services; and asset management services consisting of real property, material and acquisition services.
Part II — Report on the Access to Information Act
1. Organization of Delegation and Activities
1.1 Delegation Order
Under section 3 of the Act, the president of the PSC is designated as the head of the government institution for the administration of the Act.
Pursuant to section 73 of the Act, deputy heads may delegate any of their powers, duties or functions under the Act by signing an order authorizing one or more officers or employees of the institution, who are at the appropriate level, to exercise or perform the powers, duties or functions of the head specified in the order.
The powers, duties and functions of the president, under the Act, are delegated to the corporate secretary, Corporate Secretariat, who is the PSC’s Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) coordinator (see Appendix A – Delegation Instrument).
1.2 The Access to Information and Privacy Coordinator
The ATIP coordinator is responsible and accountable for the development, coordination and implementation of effective policies, guidelines, systems and procedures to enable the efficient processing of requests under the Act.
The coordinator is also responsible for the development, coordination and implementation of policies, systems and procedures that are required by the Act or Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) directives and policies. The activities of the coordinator include:
- Processing requests made under the Act;
- Acting as spokesperson for the PSC in dealings with TBS, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner and other government departments and agencies on matters related to the Act;
- Responding to consultation requests submitted by other federal institutions for PSC documents;
- Reviewing information collection in accordance with the Government Policy on Information Collection and Public Opinion Research;
- Preparing the annual report to Parliament and other statutory reports, as well as other material that may be required by central agencies;
- Developing policies, procedures and guidelines for the orderly implementation of the Act by the PSC;
- Promoting awareness and providing advice to PSC employees to ensure responsiveness to the obligations of the Act, TBS policies and their impact on various program initiatives; and
- Monitoring the PSC's compliance with the Act, regulations and relevant procedures and policies.
1.3 The Access to Information and Privacy Office (ATIP Office)
The ATIP Office administers the provisions of the Act for the PSC. The manager of the ATIP Office reports to the ATIP coordinator who is accountable to the president of the PSC. The ATIP Office operates with one analyst to manage requests received. The analyst is responsible for processing Access to Information Act and consultation requests, and supporting the preparation of responses to complaints. The analyst is also responsible for coordinating reviews of the PSC’s Info Source chapter.
During the course of this reporting period, the Corporate Secretariat hired a consultant to assist the ATIP Office with the processing of official requests. Furthermore, the office received part-time ad hoc administrative support services (scanning and data entry) from members of the Corporate Secretariat.
The ATIP Office Intranet site is updated on a regular basis and is the primary vehicle for communicating with PSC employees. In addition, the ATIP Office delivers training sessions for PSC employees.
The ATIP Office also reviews office procedures to improve the support it provides to its branch liaison officers and promote a better understanding of their role, responsibilities and obligations related to the processing of requests under the Act.
1.4 Liaison Officers
The ATIP Office processes requests with the assistance of liaison officers. There are liaison officers for each program activity. They include the following:
- Appointment integrity and political impartiality (one liaison officer);
- Oversight of integrity in staffing (two liaison officers);
- Staffing and assessment services (one liaison officer); and
- Internal services (one liaison officer).
2. Summary of Access to Information and Privacy Office Activities
2.1 Development of Policies, Directives, Guidelines and Other Key Documents
The PSC started working on a procedures/guidance document on how to process ATIP requests in relation to investigations conducted under the PSEA. This work should be completed during the course of the next reporting period.
2.2 Management Accountability Framework
Information management and the ATIP program were not subject to Management Accountability Framework review over the course of the reporting period.
2.3 Internal Advice and Training
In addition to processing Access to Information Act and Privacy Act requests, the ATIP Office received 248 requests for advice from PSC managers and employees, as well as from other organizations regarding a variety of issues and questions related to both acts.
Some of the 248 requests for advice dealt with the following PSC initiatives:
- Providing advice on project initiation forms, such as threat and risk assessments, statements of sensitivity, and risk analysis and impact documents;
- Answering questions related to the protection of personal information in memoranda of understanding, information sharing agreements and contracts;
- Assisting program areas in the drafting of privacy notice statements; and
- Reviewing audit reports and other documents prior to publication to ensure that personal information is released in accordance with the Act.
The ATIP coordinator is also a member of the PSC Executive Management Committee and sub-committees and offers them advice related to access, privacy and the protection of personal information.
The ATIP Office provided 20 training sessions to approximately 311 employees and managers on the provisions of the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act and their impact on programs and initiatives.
The Office created an ATIP liaison working group that met 12 times during the reporting period to discuss best practices, address gaps and provide training opportunities.
2.4 Tracking System and Imaging Software
During the reporting period, the ATIP Office continued to use the AccessPro Case Management and Redaction software and updated it to the newest version available.
3. Statistical Report: Interpretation
3.1 Requests under the Act
From April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013, the PSC received 69 new requests under the Act, a 50% increase from the 46 requests received during the previous reporting period. This increase was accompanied by a surge to 18,348 in the number of pages reviewed, more than three times as much as the previous recording period. Eight requests were carried forward from the year before.
The PSC completed its response to 65 requests during the reporting period and carried forward 12 requests into the following reporting period (2013-2014).
For a historical comparison of requests received and responses completed, see Appendix B.
3.2 Nature of Requests
As in previous years, the 65 closed requests covered the entire gamut of PSC activities:
- Nineteen requests (29%) dealt with staffing activities. For the most part, requesters were seeking information related to staffing documents, priority administration, employment equity and second language evaluation;
- Eighteen requests (28%) were from individuals seeking miscellaneous information;
- Seventeen requests (26%) pertained to investigations and audits conducted under the PSEA;
- Seven requests (11%) related to contracts, call-ups and temporary help; and
- Four requests (6%) related to various administrative matters.
3.3 Inter-Organizational Consultations
The PSC received 43 requests for consultation from other government departments and agencies, compared to 28 requests the previous year. One request was carried forward from 2011-2012, for a total of 44 requests. The processing of the consultation requests required a review of 2,687 pages of information. All requests were closed and none was carried over into the 2013-2014 reporting period.
Of the 44 requests, the PSC determined that information could be:
- Disclosed in full for 24 requests;
- Disclosed in part for 15 requests; and
- Exempted entirely for five requests.
The requests for consultation pertained to the PSEA, various staffing and priority administration files, PSC operational documents, second language evaluations and investigations.
The PSC consulted other government departments and agencies to process 13 of the requests received.
3.4 Informal Review of Information
In an attempt to increase and facilitate access, the PSC informally reviews as many requests as possible. During the reporting period, 25 requests were reviewed informally, 10 of which were for previously disclosed information. These requests are not reflected in the statistical report in Appendix C.
3.5 Disposition of Requests Completed
For the 65 closed requests, information was released either in whole or in part in 44 cases, representing 68% of total requests.
3.5.1 All Disclosed
In 16 of the 65 completed cases (25%), the applicants were provided with full access to the relevant records.
3.5.2 Disclosed in Part
Based on the exemptive and exclusionary provisions of the Act, the PSC provided applicants with partial access in 28 of the 65 completed cases (43%).
3.5.3 Nothing Disclosed (Exemption or Exclusion)
The PSC did not release any information in four instances (6%). The PSC exempted the in formation because it related to standardized testing material and/or ongoing investigations. No request was entirely excluded under the provisions of the Act.
3.5.4 Unable to Process
The PSC was unable to process five requests (8%) for lack of records.
3.5.5 Abandoned by the Applicant
Of the 65 closed requests, eight (12%) were abandoned by the applicant.
Of the 65 completed requests, the PSC transferred three (5%) to another government institution.
3.5.7 Treated Informally
One request (1%) received officially was treated informally.
3.6 Exemptions Invoked
Individuals’ right of access to information under the Act is limited by a number of exemptions specified in sections 13 through 24 and section 26 of the legislation. Sections 13 through 24 of the Act set out the exemptions intended to protect information pertaining to a particular public or private interest. Section 26 of the Act is an administrative exemption relating to information that may be published.
During the reporting period, the PSC invoked exemptions under a number of sections of the Act, as outlined in the historical comparison of exemptions in Appendix B.
3.7 Exclusions Invoked
Pursuant to section 68, the Act does not apply to material that is published or available for purchase; library or museum material preserved solely for public record; material deposited with Library and Archives Canada; as well as records considered to be confidences of the Queen's Privy Council of Canada pursuant to section 69 of the Act.
For three requests, the PSC invoked section 68(a) of the Act to exclude some information.
3.8 Extension of Time Limits
For the 65 closed requests, the PSC used a 30-day-or-less extension seven times. Some files required multiple extensions of 30 days or less under different subsections of 9(1) of the Act. Extensions of 31 days and over were taken 19 times. Again, some files required multiple extensions of 30 days and over under different subsections of the Act. All extensions were taken in accordance with sub-paragraphs 9(1)(a) and (b) of the Act.
3.9 Completion Time
Of the 65 closed requests, the PSC responded to 40 within 30 days or less, representing 62% of all the requests completed. One request (1%) was completed within 31 to 60 days, 18 (28%) within 61 to 120 days, and six (9%) in over 121 (these were complex cases requiring legal advice and consultations with other departments and agencies).
Overall, the PSC was successful in responding to 88% of requests within allowable time limits.
The PSC did not receive any request for the translation of information.
3.11 Method of Access
For all 44 requests in which information was released in whole or in part, 38 (86%) requesters received copies of the information on paper and six (14%) in CDROM format.
Under the Act, fees for certain activities related to the processing of formal requests can be levied. In addition to the $5 application fee, other charges may also apply for search, preparation and reproduction of the various records, as specified in the Access to Information Regulations. No fees are imposed for reviewing records, overhead or shipping. Moreover, in accordance with section 11 of the Act, no fees are charged for the first five hours required to search for a record or to prepare any part of it for disclosure.
The fees collected during this reporting period totaled $522, while fees waived in accordance with subsection 11(6) of the Act amounted to $1,173. Fees collected for this reporting period are estimated to less than 1% of the total cost of administering the Access to Information program.
The total salary cost associated with the program was $78,513. The total operation and maintenance cost was $35,393, for a combined total of $113,906. The associated full-time equivalent resources utilized were estimated at 1.2 and at 1.06 for part-time, totaling 2.26 for reporting period 2012-2013.
4.1 Number of Complaints
The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) received six complaints regarding Access to Information Act requests presented to the PSC during the reporting period. There were six complaints carried over from the 2011-2012 reporting period, for a total of 12 complaints, eight of which were closed during the reporting period.
4.2 Nature and Status of Complaints
The OIC investigated the eight closed files and the allegations were either discontinued or found to be unsubstantiated.
In three of these eight files, the complaint was that the PSC did not provide records in a machine-readable format. Producing the required data would have required extensive manipulation of data extracted from several PSC databases. The OIC concluded that producing the requested records from a machine-readable record would unreasonably interfere with the government operation.
Two complaints alleged interference under section 67.1 of the Act, two others were for refusal of access (for lack of records) and the last one was on delay.
At the end of the 2012-2013 reporting period, there are a total of four outstanding complaints.
