2017-2018 Annual Report on the Administration of the Access to Information Act

Posted on : Friday 14 September 2018

The Access to Information Act

The Access to Information Act (hereafter the “Act”) gives Canadian citizens, as well as individuals and corporations present in Canada, the right to access federal government records that are not of a personal nature. The public’s right of access to information is balanced against the legitimate need to protect sensitive information and to permit effective functioning of government, while promoting transparency and accountability in government institutions.

The Act complements but does not replace other procedures for obtaining government information. It is not intended to limit in any way access to government information normally available to the public upon request.

Section 72 of the Act requires the head of every government institution to submit an annual report to Parliament on the administration of the Act during the fiscal year. This report describes how the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) administered the Act throughout fiscal year 2017-2018.

Overview of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service

In 1984, the Government of Canada passed an Act of Parliament for the creation of a civilian security intelligence service. This legislation not only gave birth to CSIS, it also clarified the differences between security intelligence activities and law-enforcement work, bringing to an end the 120-year interlocking of Canada's security intelligence service with the federal police force. CSIS came into existence on July 16, 1984.

CSIS is at the forefront of Canada's national security establishment; and as such, its programs are proactive and pre-emptive. Its role is to investigate activities suspected of constituting threats to the security of Canada, and to report on these to the Government of Canada. CSIS may also take measures to reduce threats to the security of Canada in accordance with well-defined legal requirements and Ministerial direction. Key threats include terrorism, espionage, foreign interference, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and cyber-threats against critical information systems and infrastructure.

Through its Security Screening Program, CSIS provides advice that prevents non-Canadians who pose security concerns from entering Canada or receiving permanent resident status or citizenship. CSIS also helps prevent individuals of security concern from gaining access to Canadian information, assets, sites or events.

The Access to Information and Privacy Section

The Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Section reports to the Assistant Director Intelligence via the Director General Litigation and Disclosure Branch. The ATIP Section has an establishment of 16 fulltime employees to fulfill CSIS’ obligations under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act. When fully staffed, the ATIP Section is comprised of a Chief, a Deputy Chief, three unit Heads, eight Analysts, a Privacy Advisor and two Administrative Officers.

During the 2017-2018 reporting period, all 16 of the positions were filled with the exception of the Privacy Advisor position which, as a new position, underwent the classification and competition process. All staff in the ATIP section is fully dedicated to the administration of the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act programs within CSIS, providing high-quality and timely responses to internal and external clients including other government departments. CSIS Legal Services Branch, which is staffed by Department of Justice (DoJ) lawyers, provides legal advice as required.

The ATIP Section’s responsibilities regarding the Act include, but are not limited to:

  • receive and process all requests in accordance with the Act;
  • assist requesters in formulating their requests when required;
  • gather all pertinent records and ensure that the search for information is rigorous and complete;
  • conduct the initial record review and provide recommendations to the program areas;
  • conduct all internal and external consultations;
  • consolidate the recommendations;
  • apply all discretionary and mandatory exemptions under the Act;
  • assist the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) in all access to information related matters including complaints against CSIS;
  • represent CSIS in access to information litigation cases;
  • coordinate the annual Info Source update and submission to Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS);
  • prepare the annual report on the administration of the Act;
  • provide ongoing advice and guidance to senior management and departmental staff on all matters related to the access to information program;
  • promote access to information awareness and training sessions within the department to ensure all staff are aware of the obligations imposed by the legislation;
  • monitor departmental compliance with the Act, regulations and relevant procedures and policies;
  • respond to consultations received from external organizations;
  • maintain the CSIS public reading room;
  • develop and maintain access to information policies and guidelines; and
  • participate in ATIP community activities, such as the annual Canadian Access and Privacy Association (CAPA) conference, TBS ATIP community meetings and various working groups.

Education and Training

During the 2017-2018 reporting period, one Executive level presentation was given by members of CSIS ATIP. Additionally, the ATIP Section continues to conduct awareness sessions through ATIP e-learning narrated slides. The narrated slides form part of the new employee orientation program which is required for all new employees. All other Service employees have the ability to reference the narrative slides at any given time through the e-learning application. The narrated slides provides participants with an overview of the Act and the Privacy Act, promotes a better comprehension of individual responsibilities and obligations relating to the Acts and offers an greater understanding of the internal ATIP process. During the 2017-2018 fiscal year, 233 Service employees viewed the ATIP narrative slides.

Monitoring the Progress of Requests

There is a robust case monitoring system in place using reports produced by the ATIP Case Management software. Requests are monitored by the Chief ATIP and the unit heads on an ongoing basis.

Compliance and Deemed Refusal Rates

A total of 851 requests were received in the 2017-2018 fiscal year. Although faced with a significant increase in volume from the previous fiscal year, the Service closed 791 requests and maintained a high on-time compliance rate of 98.4% with a 1.6 % deemed refusal rate. As of April 1st, 2018, three requests received during the 2017-2018 fiscal year are in a deemed refusal situation.

Other Requests

The ATIP Section also acted as a resource for CSIS officials, and offered advice and guidance on the provisions of the legislation. The ATIP Section was consulted on issues relating to a wide range of matters including, but not limited to, information management, security of information, draft policies and memoranda of understanding, Parliamentary question period notes (QPNs) and releases of information made by CSIS outside the parameters of the Act.

Delegation of Authority

In accordance with section 73 of the Act, a delegation order signed by the Minister of Public Safety Canada designates the persons holding the positions of Director of CSIS, the Assistant Director Intelligence, the Director General, Litigation and Disclosure Branch and the Chief ATIP to exercise and perform the duties of the Minister as Head of the institution. The order was issued on March 8, 2016, by the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Canada, the Honourable Ralph Goodale.
