The Ministry of Correctional Services (now the Ministry of the Solicitor General and Correctional Services) (the Ministry) received a request under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) for all information pertaining to the requester and his employment at the Toronto Jail. The Ministry granted partial access to the records, with exemptions pursuant to sections 14(1)(b), 20 and 49(b) of the Act. The requester appealed the Ministry's decision.
During the course of mediation duplicate records were identified and removed. The Ministry revised its decision indicating that access was granted to additional parts of the records and it was now relying on sections 14(1)(d), 14(1)(k), 20, 21(1) and 49(b) of the Act to deny access to the remaining portions of the record.
Further mediation of the appeal was not possible and notice that an inquiry was being conducted to review the Ministry's decision was sent to the appellant and the Ministry. Representations were received from the Ministry only. In its representations, the Ministry indicated that access had been granted to additional records.
