Any Canadian citizen, permanent resident or individual present in Canada has the right to access their personal information or request correction of the content of their personal information held by government institutions that are subject to the Privacy Act.

Step 1. Check if the information is already public

Before submitting a request under the Access to Information Act, check if the information you seek has already been released by the Government of Canada on the Completed Access to Information Requests site or through the Proactive Disclosure portal.
