Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA)
BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (or FOIPPA for short) gives you the right to see many records kept by the provincial government ministries and other public bodies or organizations. Under FIPPA, privacy means maximizing, wherever possible, and to the extent that is reasonable, a citizen’s control over the collection, use and disclosure of his or her personal information. The Act applies to NOHS as a provider of service under the authority of a public body.
