Annual Report on the Privacy Act 2012-2013

Table of Contents

Introduction

The Privacy Act was proclaimed into force on July 1, 1983. The Act grants Canadian citizens, permanent residents or any person present in Canada a right of access to their personal information that is held by federal government institutions, subject to specific and limited exceptions, and to an independent review of decisions on disclosure.

This Annual Report is prepared and is being tabled before each House of Parliament in accordance with section 72 of the Privacy Act.

This Annual Report provides a summary of the management and administration of the Privacy Act within the Public Prosecution Service of Canada (PPSC) for the reporting year 2012–2013.

Background

The PPSC became subject to the Privacy Act when it was established as an independent organization on December 12, 2006. The PPSC was created with the coming into force of the Director of Public Prosecutions Act, Part 3 of the Federal Accountability Act. The PPSC replaced the former Federal Prosecution Service of the Department of Justice Canada.

Mandate of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada

The mandate of the PPSC is set out in the Director of Public Prosecutions Act. The Act empowers the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to:

The Director of Public Prosecutions Act also empowers the DPP to:

With the exception of Canada Elections Act matters, the Attorney General of Canada can issue a directive to the DPP about a prosecution or assume conduct of a prosecution, but must do so in writing, and a notice must be published in the Canada Gazette. In turn, the DPP must inform the Attorney General of any prosecution or planned intervention that may raise important questions of general interest.

Roles & Responsibilities of the Public Prosecution Service of Canada

The PPSC prosecutes offences within federal jurisdiction and provides prosecution-related advice to law enforcement agencies across Canada. In total, over 250 federal statutes contain offences that fall under the PPSC’s jurisdiction to prosecute. Charges are regularly laid under approximately 60 of those statutes.

The PPSC is not an investigative agency. It conducts a prosecution when a charge of violating federal law has been laid by an investigative or law enforcement agency following an investigation.

In all provinces and territories, except Quebec and New Brunswick, the PPSC is responsible for prosecuting all drug offences under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act, regardless of which police agency investigates the alleged offences. In Quebec and New Brunswick, the PPSC prosecutes only those drug offences that were investigated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

In all provinces and territories, the PPSC prosecutes violations of federal statutes such as the Income Tax Act, the Fisheries Act, the Excise Act, the Customs Act, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, and the Competition Act, as well as conspiracies and attempts to violate these statutes.

In the three territories, the PPSC is also responsible for prosecuting all Criminal Code offences. In the provinces, the PPSC has jurisdiction to prosecute a limited number of Criminal Code offences, including those related to terrorism, criminal organizations, money laundering, proceeds of crime and fraud. Under arrangements with the provinces, the PPSC may also prosecute Criminal Code offences that are otherwise within provincial jurisdiction when the accused also faces drug-related charges.

Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Office

The ATIP Office is the focal point for the application of access to information and privacy legislation at the PPSC. The mandate of the ATIP Office is to implement and administer the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act. The ATIP Office deals directly with the public in relation to access to information and privacy requests and, in collaboration with the Offices of Primary Interest (OPIs), serves as the centre of ATIP expertise in enabling the PPSC to meet its statutory obligations under these Acts.

The ATIP Office undertakes the responsibility of the administration of the Privacy Act by:

ATIP Governance Structure

The PPSC formalized its ATIP Governance Structure, which outlines the roles and responsibilities of all employees and clarifies how the PPSC meets both its access to information and privacy obligations.

Interpretation of the Statistical Report

The following provides interpretation of the summarized statistical information contained in Appendix A of this Annual Report. This report will also compare data from 2012–2013 with data from the previous five reporting periods to identify and examine possible trends.

Part 1 – Requests under the Privacy Act

The PPSC received sixteen (16) formal privacy requests during the 2012–2013 reporting period, which represents an increase of 23% from 2011–2012. Two (2) requests were carried over from the previous reporting period.

Part 2 – Requests closed during the reporting period

Disposition of requests completed

Fifteen (15) requests were completed during this reporting period. Three (3) requests were carried over into the 2013–2014 reporting period. The completed requests are categorized as follows:

Percentage of the Disposition of Requests
All disclosed (1) Disclosed in part (7) No records exist (5) Request abandoned (2)
7% 47% 33% 13%

* No records were all exempted or all excluded during this reporting period.

The requests where access could not be provided fell into the following categories:

No records exist

Five (5) requests could not be processed as no relevant records existed under the control of the PPSC.

Request abandoned

Two (2) requests were abandoned by the applicants. In both cases, the applicant was asked to provide clarification as the submitted request was found to be either too broad or unclear. The applicants were also advised in writing to contact the ATIP Office within 30 days. In each case, no clarification was received and the request was deemed abandoned.

Percentage of Disposition of Requests over the last Five Reporting Periods
All disclosed (3) Disclosed in part (33) No records exist (14) Request abandoned (10)
5% 55% 23% 17%

The number of requests where no records exist increased to five (5). This represents an increase of 122% when compared with the average of 2.25 such requests during the previous four reporting periods. These include requests where the PPSC had no information concerning the applicant or the applicant’s prosecution. Often in such cases, requesters were redirected to provincial freedom of information offices.

N.B. Prior to the 2011–2012 reporting period, the category “No records Exist” was referred to as “Unable to process” as per Treasury Board Secretariat guidelines.

Completion time

The time required to process the fifteen (15) completed Privacy requests during the 2012–2013 reporting period is summarized below:

Percentage of Requests by the Completion Time
1 to 15 days (6) 16 to 30 days (5) 31 to 60 days (2) 61 to 120 days (1) 181 to 365 days (1)
40% 33% 13% 7% 7%

During the 2012–2013 reporting period, 73% of requests were completed within the 30-day statutory deadline. The PPSC required 30-day extensions in three (3) cases; two (2) because meeting the original time limit would have unreasonably interfered with the operations of the PPSC; and one (1) because consultations with another government institution were necessary.

Percentage of Requests by Completion Time over the last Five Reporting Periods
1 to 15 days (31) 16 to 30 days (9) 31 to 60 days (12) 61 to 120 days (7) 181 to 365 days (1)
51% 15% 20% 12% 2%

During the last five reporting periods, 52% of Privacy requests were completed within the 30-day statutory deadline.

Exemptions

Section 2.2 of the Statistical Report illustrates the types of exemptions applied by the PPSC in accordance with the Act in the processing of requests during 2012–2013.

Percentage of Exemptions applied
Section 25 (1) Section 26 (6) Section 27 (3)
10% 60% 30%

The PPSC invoked three (3) exemptions during 2012–2013, namely sections 25 [Security of Individuals], 26 [Information about another individual], and 27 [Solicitor-client privilege] of the Privacy Act.

PPSC files contain a significant amount of personal information, including information about the accused, witnesses, and victims.

Exemptions applied over the last Five Reporting Periods

Due to the mandate of the PPSC, the majority of the information exempted over the last five years was withheld pursuant to sections 26 and 27 of the Privacy Act.

Exclusions

The Privacy Act does not apply to library or museum material preserved solely for public record, material placed in Library and Archives Canada, or records considered to be confidences of the Queen's Privy Council, pursuant to sections 69 and 70 of the Act respectively.

Since the PPSC’s inception, it has not invoked any exclusions under the Privacy Act.

Format of information released

Statistics are based solely on those requests for which information was disclosed in its entirety or disclosed only in part. Access to the relevant documents was given for eight (8) requests. Paper copies were provided in all these cases.

Complexity

Due to the nature of the organization’s work, processing privacy requests at the PPSC is complex. The mandate of the PPSC is to prosecute offences under federal jurisdiction and to provide advice on prosecution-related matters to investigative agencies. Records of the PPSC often contain information relating to criminal or regulatory investigations or prosecutions as well as the PPSC's work involving other organizations and departments at the federal, provincial or territorial level. The PPSC must consult with these other organizations and carefully consider the legal impact of disclosure of such information.

During the 2012–2013 reporting period, the PPSC sought legal advice once and consulted with another government institution on one occasion.

Deemed refusals

The PPSC was in deemed refusal twice during the last reporting period. In one case, the PPSC took an extension of 30 days, but due to the large volume of records sought the PPSC was unable to complete its processing of the request within 60 days. In an effort to be proactive and as cooperative as possible, the PPSC made numerous interim releases with respect to this case.

Requests for translation

There were no requests for translation from one official language to the other.

Part 3 – Disclosures under subsection 8(2)

Subsection 8(2) of the Privacy Act describes the circumstances under which personal information under the control of a government institution may be disclosed without the consent of the individual to whom the information pertains.

The PPSC did not make any disclosures under subsections 8(2)(e) [to an investigative body for the purpose of enforcing any law of Canada or a province or for carrying out a lawful investigation], nor subsection 8(2)(m) [public interest in disclosure clearly outweighs any invasion of privacy] during this reporting period.

Part 4 – Request for correction of personal information and notations

There were no requests for correction of personal information nor were notations required during this reporting period.

Part 5 – Extensions

Reasons for extensions and disposition of requests

Section 15 of the Privacy Act allows institutions to extend the 30-day deadline for processing a request if meeting the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the government institution or if the institution must consult with other government institutions.

Reasons for Extensions taken by percentage
Consultation (1) Interference with operations (2)
33% 67%

Three (3) extensions of 30 days each were taken during 2012–2013 reporting period. The statutory deadline was extended in two (2) cases on the basis that meeting the original time limit would have unreasonably interfered with the operations of the PPSC. In one case, the 30-day extension was taken to allow for the PPSC to consult with another government institution.

Part 6 – Consultations received from other institutions and organizations

In total, the PPSC received twelve (12) Privacy consultations from other government institutions during the 2012–2013 reporting period.

Percentage of Consultations Received from other Institutions
RCMP (8) CBSA (3) CSC (1)
67% 25% 8%

The majority of consultations were forwarded by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), which accounted for 67% of the consultations and 93% of the pages received. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) and the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) submitted the other four (4) privacy consultations.

The PPSC recommended full or partial disclosure for 75% of the records received during 2012–2013 reporting period. The other three (3) privacy consultations did not contain PPSC information, and the requester was told where to redirect his request.

Part 7 – Completion time of consultations on Cabinet confidences

During the 2012–2013 reporting period, the PPSC had no consultations to conduct on Cabinet confidences.

Part 8 – Resources related to the Privacy Act

Costs

The PPSC spent a total of $178,532 administering the Privacy Act of which salaries accounted for $148,530 and Goods and Services accounted for $2,442. The PPSC tendered a contract for a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) costing $27,560.

Privacy Costs over the last Five Reporting Periods
2008–2009 2009–2010 2010-2011 2011-2012 2012-2013
Salary $39,000 $105,000 $98,000 $131,000 $148,530
Administration $19,000 $75,000 $125,000 $50,000 $30,000
Total $63,000 $170,000 $220,000 $150,000 $178,532

The cost of the administration of the Privacy Act at the PPSC over the last five reporting periods peaked in 2010–2011 and declined slightly in subsequent reporting periods.

Over the last five years, salary costs have steadily increased, reflecting the increased time spent by staff dealing with the administration of the Act, the complexity of the requests received, the development of privacy-related policy, and work related to privacy breaches.

Privacy-Related Training Activities

During this reporting period, a roundtable discussion regarding the PPSC’s ATIP processes and employee obligations under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act was conducted with Human Resources and Labour Relations Staff in Ottawa.

The ATIP Office, in partnership with PPSC Security Services and the PPSC Information Management and Technology Directorate, hosted a video conference awareness session with staff from across the country to discuss how privacy and security impact on the PPSC’s Business. The session was attended by PPSC officials from all regions of the country.

The PPSC continued to provide informal privacy-related training to employees throughout the year on an ad hoc basis.

Since the creation of the PPSC in 2006, the ATIP Office has provided formal training in every region except Quebec and Nunavut.

Privacy-Related Policies, Guidelines and Procedures

During the 2012–2013 reporting period, the PPSC participated in the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s pilot project for the proactive online posting of its Info Source chapter.

Complaints and Investigations

To ensure that government institutions comply with their privacy obligations, and that all requesters are treated fairly and consistently, section 29 and sections 41 to 52 of the Privacy Act provide for a review of decisions made under the Act. The first level of review is a formal complaint to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada; the second is an application for judicial review to the Federal Court.

During this reporting period, three (3) complaints were filed with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) against the PPSC. The three complaints (for unnecessary extension, delays in response, and improper exemptions) were related to one file. The complaint related to the extension taken by the PPSC was deemed not well founded. The complaint on delays in responding to a request was deemed well-founded, and the investigation into the complaint on the exemptions invoked by the PPSC has not yet been concluded.

Federal Court Review

During this reporting period, no application for judicial review was filed with the Federal Court pursuant to section 44 of the Act.

Privacy Impact Assessment

A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a tool which can help an organization meet its privacy responsibilities with regards to the management of personal information. PIAs are initiated when assessing the privacy implications of new or substantially modified programs and activities involving personal information.

During this reporting period, the PPSC initiated a PIA but as of the end of the 2012–2013 fiscal year the PIA had not yet been completed.
