FOIP and Privacy

The Balancing Pool is a public body subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the “FOIP Act”).

The basic objectives of the FOIP Act are:

  • to ensure that public bodies are open and accountable to the public by providing a right of access to records; and
  • to protect the privacy of individuals by controlling the manner in which public bodies collect, use and disclose personal information.

Applicants seeking access to records held by the Balancing Pool may choose to draft their own request or use the Request to Access Information Form and must pay the applicable fee set out in the FOIP Regulation or request a fee waiver.

Please ensure that cheques are made payable to the “Balancing Pool”.
