Annual Report to Parliament 2014-2015 - Access to Information Act

NRC Annual Report to Parliament 2014‑2015 – Access to Information Act (PDF, 1,309 KB)

I. Introduction

The purpose of the Access to Information Act is to provide a right of access to information contained in records under the control of government institutions. The information is subject to certain limited and specific exemptions. The Act is intended to complement and not replace existing procedures for access to government information.

In accordance with Section 72 of the Access to Information Act, this thirty-first Annual Report on the administration of the Access to Information Act at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) describes how NRC discharged its responsibilities in relation to the Act in the fiscal year 2014‑2015. The Annual Report is to be tabled in Parliament in accordance with section 72 of the Access to Information Act.

Mandate of the National Research Council of Canada

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) is an agency of the Government of Canada established in 1916. As stated in the NRC Act, the agency is responsible for:

  • Undertaking, assisting or promoting scientific and industrial research in different fields of importance to Canada;
  • Establishing, operating and maintaining a national science library;
  • Publishing and selling or otherwise distributing such scientific and technical information as the Council deems necessary;
  • Investigating standards and methods of measurement;
  • Working on the standardization and certification of scientific and technical apparatus and instruments and materials used or usable by Canadian industry;
  • Operating and administering any astronomical observatories established or maintained by the Government of Canada;
  • Administering NRC's research and development activities, including contributions used to support a number of international activities;
  • Providing vital scientific and technological services to the research and industrial communities.

II. Organizational structure and delegation of authority

From 1 April 2014 to 19 August 2014, the NRC President delegated the responsibilities associated with the administration of the Access to Information Act to the Executive Vice-President and Secretary General and to the Director, Corporate Governance. Partial authority is delegated to the Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Coordinator.

The delegation of authority changed as of 20 August 2014. The President delegated full authority for the application and administration of the Access to Information Act to the Director General, Knowledge Management and to the Director, Information Management Services Directorate. The ATIP Coordinator's authority remained the same.

A detailed signed Delegation Order can be found at Annex A.

During the period covered by this report, the NRC Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) office was part of NRC Knowledge Management Branch (NRC‑KM).

In 2014‑2015, the NRC ATIP Office was comprised of one part-time Coordinator, one senior ATIP Officer and two junior ATIP Officers (one full-time and one part-time).

The NRC ATIP Office works closely with the NRC Records Management, NRC Industrial Research Assistance Program ATIP liaison officer, Executive Advisors, NRC Communications Branch and senior management across the organization.

Procedures are in place to process all formal access to information requests in accordance with the Access to Information Act.

The ATIP Office is responsible for the coordination and implementation of policies, guidelines and procedures to ensure the organization's compliance with the Access to Information Act.To that end, the office provides the following services to the organization:

  • Promotes awareness of the Access to Information Act within the organization
  • Processes and manages access to information requests and complaints
  • Manages the relevant electronic management system
  • Responds to access-related matters in the Management Accountability Framework
  • Processes consultations received from other institutions
  • Provides advice and guidance to employees and senior officials on access related matters
  • Prepares an Annual Report to Parliament
  • Coordinates updates to the Info Source publications
  • Reviews departmental documents (such as audit and evaluation reports prior to their proactive disclosure on the organization's website), Parliamentary Questions and Harassment Reports
  • Develops internal procedures
  • Participates in forums for the ATIP community, such as the Treasury Board Secretariat ATIP Community meetings and working groups.

In accordance with Section 71 of the Access to Information Act, the public may inspect manuals used by employees to administer or carry out programs or activities that affect the public at Building M-55, NRC Montreal Road Campus, Ottawa, Ontario.

III. Interpretation of statistical report

Annex B provides a summarized statistical report on the access requests received and processed by the National Research Council of Canada from 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015. This section provides an interpretation of the statistical report.

During the fiscal year, NRC received thirty-six (36) new access to information (ATI) requests. Six (6) requests were outstanding from the previous fiscal year, for a total of forty-two (42) requests to process in the 2014‑2015 fiscal year. NRC completed forty-one (41) access to information requests during this reporting period. One (1) request was carried over into the next fiscal year.

The figures, as reflected in the chart below, indicate the number of requests received and processed over the past three years. The figures do not reflect requests processed informally or other queries that have been received and processed in the ATIP office.

2012‑2013 66 68 5
2013‑2014 42 41 6
2014‑2015 36 41 1

The trends indicate a slight decrease in the number of access to information requests received; however, the complexity of the requests has significantly increased mainly due to the following reasons:

  • The number of pages that had to be reviewed by the ATIP Unit has dramatically increased;
  • There was an increase in the amount of consultations needed with other departments and third parties;
  • Due to the way the requests are written, the ATIP Unit is required to retrieve records from many levels of the organization including individual employees and operating units. In consequence, the analysts have to go through a large amount of paper which often consists of duplicates and email chains. The ATIP Office will continue to reinforce the training on email best practices across NRC to resolve this particular issue.

The breakdown of the source of requestors is as follows: fifteen (15) from the media, two (2) from academia, six (6) from business, one (1) from organization and twelve (12) from the public.

The subject of the thirty-six (36) requests received related to varied sectors across the organization as follows:

Human Resources 3
Grants and Contributions including the NRC-Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC‑IRAP) 5
Contracting including call-ups and purchase orders 6
Program Research 6
Organizational and Financial Management 3
Miscellaneous 13

Section 9 of the Act provides for the extension of the statutory time limits if consultations are necessary or if the request is for a large volume of records and processing the request within the original time limit would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the organization. In addition, extensions are invoked when consultations are necessary to comply with the request or section 27(1) of the Act. NRC invoked an extension in the case of twenty-six (26) requests. The extensions involved records that contained confidential business information that required third party consultations and cases when meeting the original time limit of thirty days would have unreasonably interfered with the operations of the organization.

In summary, out of forty-one (41) completed requests, twenty (20) were completed in 30 days or less, six (6) were completed within 31 to 60 days seven (7) were completed between 61 and 120 days, five (5) were completed between 121 and 180 days and three (3) were completed between 181 and 365 days. All levels of NRC worked diligently to ensure a high performance in meeting statutory deadlines.

NRC is asked by other government organizations for its input on disclosure of information that had originated within the National Research Council Canada. This reporting year, fifty-four (54) consultation requests were received from other government departments and two (2) consultation requests were received from other organizations, compared to forty (40) from other government departments and zero (0) from organizations in 2013‑2014 and thirty-three (33) from other government departments and one (1) from organizations in 2012‑2013.

2013‑2014 40 0
2012‑2013 33 1

The ATIP Office works closely with the offices of primary interest at NRC to respond effectively to these requests. The increase in consultation requests is mainly due to the access to information requests received across government departments about the cyber intrusion on NRC IT infrastructure.

Sections 2.2 and 2.3 of the Statistical Report are intended to identify the number of requests in cases where specific types of exemptions and exclusions were invoked.NRC invoked exemptions and exclusions pursuant to sections 15(1) - Def, 16(2)(c), 18(a)(b), 19(1), 20(1)(a)(b)(c)(d), 21(1)(a)(b)(c)(d), 23 and 69(1)(a)(c) of the Act.

  • Section 15 (International affairs and Defence) was invoked in one (1) case.
  • Section 16 (Law enforcement and investigations) was invoked in five (5) cases.
  • Section 18 (Economic Interests of Canada) was invoked in four (4) cases.
  • Section 19 (Personal Information) was invoked in fourteen (14) cases and was applied to the information that is considered personal and where individual consent was not obtained.
  • Section 20 (Third Party Information) was invoked in twenty-two (22) cases. The exemptions applied pursuant to Section 20 involve confidential business information belonging to a third party.The third parties in question were consulted pursuant to section 27 of the Act and provided substantial rationales in support of the protection of their information.
  • Section 21 (Advice, etc.) was invoked in twenty-seven (27) cases. The information severed under this section is considered part of NRC's business operations which include internal advice, recommendations and deliberations between Senior NRC Officials and positions of plans developed for the purpose of negotiations and as well as plans relating to management of personnel. The release of this information would have compromised the integrity of NRC's decision-making process and the candidness of discussions.
  • Section 23 (Solicitor-Client Privilege) was invoked in two (2) cases. The release of this information would have revealed confidential information provided by NRC's legal advisors.
  • Section 69 (Cabinet confidences), which provides for exclusion of confidences of the Privy Council, was invoked in two (2) cases.

As a result of web posting summaries of completed access to information requests, NRC received additional informal requests for previously released information. The ATIP Office processed eighteen (18) informal requests (not subject to the Access to information Act) in this reporting period, compared to fourteen (14) in 2013‑2014, three (3) in 2012‑2013 and zero (0) for 2011‑2012.

Within the context of its overall roles and responsibilities, NRC's ATIP Office reviewed a total of one hundred sixty-one (161) parliamentary questions received for the period of 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2015, compared to seventy-six (76) in 2013‑2014 and eighty-six (86) in 2012‑2013.

IV. Access to information-related training and education

The ATIP Office is committed to providing ongoing development and training to NRC's employees. Six training sessions were offered during the fiscal year:

Date Topic Number of
Attendees
22 April 2014 ATIP general function training 10
23 April 2014 ATIP general function training 20
15 May 2014 ATIP at the NRC 12
23 October 2014 Basics of the Acts, processes, legislative requirements and best practices 15
12 January 2015 OPIs and their roles 8
21 January 2015 Information Management and ATIP at NRC 27

All training sessions included information on personal information and the privacy legislation which has been accounted for in the Privacy Act annual report. ATIP tools are available on NRC external and internal websites.

ATIP employees continually work to sensitize and guide employees, third parties and requesters regarding the requirements of the Access to Information Act by means of ongoing dialogue and bilateral discussions. During the reporting period, ATIP Coordinator and Officers responded to inquiries from colleagues, providing advice and guidance on various subjects pertaining to Access to Information legislation.

Throughout the fiscal year, the ATIP Coordinator and Officers attended ATIP community meetings and different training sessions offered by Treasury Board Secretariat.

V. Procedures, guidelines and directives

On July 29, 2014, the Chief Information Officer for the Government of Canada issued a public statement saying that: "Recently, the Government of Canada, through the work of the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), detected and confirmed a cyber intrusion on the IT infrastructure of the National Research Council of Canada by a highly sophisticated Chinese state-sponsored actor." The statement added that the Government had, in response, isolated NRC's IT infrastructure and separated it from the broader Government of Canada network as a precautionary measure. NRC officials stated at that time that NRC had received confirmation of the intrusion earlier in the month (July 2014) and that it had worked with its security and other government partners in the following days to determine the nature and scope of the intrusion and to identify the best means of countering it. The Offices of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Information Commissioner of Canada were contacted immediately thereafter to share information on the event as it related to the administration of the Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Acts.   

Over the following months, the NRC ATIP Office itself committed itself to the following:

  • Monitoring activity pursuant to the cyber intrusion with respect to any inappropriate access to personal and other sensitive information;
  • Placing a priority on the early restoration of NRC's capacity to meet the requirements of the ATIP Acts, both in terms of access to data and files and in restoring of software tools and networks;
  • Seeking opportunities to participate in and contribute to the development of an information security culture at NRC through the development of training and other engagement activities around the deployment of a new NRC IT infrastructure and security systems.

With the completion of the previously announced (1 April 2014) transfer of the ATIP function from the NRC Secretary General's Office (NRC-SGO) to the NRC Knowledge Management (NRC‑KM) Branch in September 2014, the stage was set for a more robust integration of ATIP considerations with planning, training, records management, and information security strategies at NRC. This situation will ensure that the NRC ATIP Office has the means to input directly into the above processes and to draw on resources related to issues raised by the cyber intrusion and its aftermath.

Due to the cyber intrusion, some delays occurred in the posting of the summaries of completed Access to Information requests as well as its ATIP Annual Reports and the revision of its InfoSource Chapter on its website.

VI. Complaints, investigations and federal court cases

Zero (0) complaints were filed against NRC in 2014‑2015.

Three (3) outstanding complaints from fiscal year 2011‑2012 are now closed. Two (2) complaints (A2011-0024 and A2011-0058) were discontinued and one (1) complaint (A2011-0026) was considered well-founded and resolved.

There were no court cases in 2014‑2015.

VII. Monitoring of access to information requests

In keeping with TBS policies and directives, the ATIP Office has established internal ATIP procedures and business practices to ensure the efficient and timely processing of access requests, while making every effort to assist applicants in the most expeditious manner without regard to their identity.

The Access to Information and Privacy Office had, in previous years, a tracking system that kept track of both the active and closed requests. This system was designed to follow the legislative deadlines. Interim internal procedures were implemented due to the cyber intrusion on the NRC IT Infrastructure. An alternate operational system was put in place while pending the recovery of the tracking database.

The ATIP Office holds weekly meetings to discuss file activities, determine timelines and for ensuring all team members are informed of status of files. This is further an opportunity to share other ATIP business and to inform departmental officials on ATIP business.

A report of Access to Information requests is shared with the Ministerial Liaison Office on a weekly basis. A report of active ATIP files is shared with the NRC Communications Branch on a weekly basis and a bi-weekly more detailed report is provided to delegated authorities.

Footnotes

Footnote 1

The accompanying Statistical Tables do not always present data reflecting the total number of requests as they often focus on specific subsets such as cases that were delayed beyond the due dates or those that list only requests that involved the disclosure of all documents or a partial disclosure. Other differences from the totals for the year are due to cases when, for example, more than one extension was required.
