Annual Statistical Reporting

The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario’s (IPC) Annual Statistics Submission Website is now closed.

The deadline for filing your statistical report was February 28, 2018.

If your institution is subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) and/or Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), you are required to submit your statistics to the IPC. You must submit a report even if you had no freedom of information requests during the 2017 calendar year.

If you are responsible for more than one institution, you must file individual reports for each institution. Hospitals must provide the IPC with reports that cover their formal (written) access or correction requests under both FIPPA and PHIPA.

All institutions must file reports online. We do not accept statistical reports by fax or email.

Institutions will be reporting:

  • The number of formal (written) requests for access under FIPPA/MFIPPA and/or PHIPA.
  • The number of refusals under FIPPA/MFIPPA and/or PHIPA, the provisions under which the refusal was made, and the number of occasions on which each provision was invoked.
  • The number of uses or purposes for which personal information, including personal health information, was disclosed where the use or purpose was not included in the personal information bank index under FIPPA/MFIPPA or the written public statement under PHIPA.
  • The amount of fees collected and other information indicating the effort to put into practice the purposes of these statutes.

Reporting online is easy!
