Note: Some of the content is wider than usual.

1. Introduction

The Department of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) presents to Parliament its Annual Report on the Administration of the Access to Information Act (the “Act”) for fiscal year 2017–2018 (April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018). This report is prepared and tabled in accordance with section 72 of the Act.

The purpose of the Act is to provide a right of access to information in records under the control of a government institution. The Act maintains that government information should be made available to the public, which necessary exceptions to the right of access should be limited and specific, and that decisions on the disclosure of government information should be reviewed independently of government.

In accordance with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) requirements, this report provides an overview of the activities of AAFC in administering its responsibilities under the Act. This report should be considered along with AAFC's 2017–2018 Annual Report to Parliament on the Administration of the Privacy Act, which is tabled separately.

AAFC's Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Office is the focal point for access to information and privacy matters within the Department. For fiscal year 2017–2018, AAFC responded to all access to information requests within the prescribed deadlines.

2. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's mandate

Raison d'être
For generations, agriculture has made significant contributions to Canada's economy, food supply, environment and culture. On July 1, 1867, the federal Department of Agriculture was created and the first Minister of Agriculture was appointed. Today, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada provides leadership in the growth, development and sustainability of the Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector. AAFC supports the industry through initiatives that promote innovation and competitiveness and that proactively manage risk. The Department's goal is to position agriculture, agri-food and agri-based product industries to realize their full potential by seizing new opportunities in the growing domestic and global marketplace.
Our vision
Driving innovation and ingenuity to build a world-leading agricultural and food economy for the benefit of all Canadians.
Our mission
Provides leadership in the growth and development of a competitive, innovative and sustainable Canadian agriculture and agri-food sector.
Responsibilities

AAFC provides information, research and technology, and policies and programs to help Canada's agriculture, agri-food and agri-based products sector compete in markets at home and abroad, manage risk and embrace innovation. The Department's activities extend from the farmer to the consumer, from the farm to global markets, through all phases of sustainably producing, processing and marketing agriculture and agri-food products. In this regard, and since agriculture is a shared responsibility, AAFC works closely with provincial and territorial governments.

The Department is responsible for ensuring collaboration among the organizations within the AAFC portfolio. In other words, it ensures coherent policy and program development and effective co-operation in meeting challenges on cross-portfolio issues. The portfolio organizations consist of the Canadian Dairy Commission, the Canadian Grain Commission, Farm Credit Canada, the Canada Agricultural Review Tribunal and the Farm Products Council of Canada. AAFC also includes the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency, a special operating agency that regulates and supervises pari-mutuel betting on horse racing at racetracks across Canada.

3. Access to Information and Privacy Office structure

The ATIP Office is the focal point for access to information and privacy matters within AAFC. Key responsibilities include:

The ATIP Office reports to the Director General (DG), Communications Services, under the direction of the Assistant Deputy Minister (ADM) of the Public Affairs Branch (PAB). The ADM, PAB provides senior management support and leadership.

The team comprises of access and privacy policy analysts who play a key compliance and risk mitigation role for the Department. Ten positions are attributed to the Office:

The cost of administering the ATIP Office (for both access to information and privacy matters) during the reporting period was $1,011,444. This represents 7.79 FTEs or $768,508 in salaries and $242,936 for professional services.

The ATIP Office is supported by a designated network of 17 offices of primary interest (OPIs) - holders of the relevant information identified in an access request. OPIs are responsible for coordinating branch-specific request activities and providing guidance to colleagues on the administrative processes related to the Act. OPIs and their DGs review and recommend on the relevant information to be released prior to ATIP review and final approval. The ATIP Office continuously searches for new ways to streamline the processing of requests.

4. Delegation of authority

Section 73 of the Access to Information Act provides for the Minister of AAFC to delegate the powers, duties and functions designated by the Act.

The ATIP Office reports to the Director General, Communications Services, PAB, where it remains wholly separate from the activities of the Branch. The delegation of authority for the administration of the Access to information Act includes the DG and the ATIP Director/Coordinator. Both positions have full delegated authority to approve exemptions and final release packages under the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act, in accordance with the delegation of authority instrument approved by the Minister in June 2016. Certain administrative functions are also delegated to the ATIP Team Leaders to enhance efficiency in request processing.

The Assistant Deputy Minister, Public Affairs Branch, is also recognized in this instrument.

The delegation of authority instrument for the administration of the Access to Information Act is appended hereto at Annexes A and B.

In summary

AAFC received 415 requests during the reporting period (166 access requests, 153 informal requests and 96 consultation requests). This represents a 14% increase in total requests received over the previous reporting period (364 requests received), and an 84% increase in the number of pages reviewed over the previous year.

Summaries of AAFC's completed access to information requests may be found on the Government of Canada's Open Government web pages.

6. Access complaints, investigations and audits

The Act provides a system of review to help ensure federal institutions comply with their obligations. Under this system of review, a requester may file a complaint with the Information Commissioner of Canada, who will investigate the matter on behalf of the requester. After the complaint investigation is carried out, the Commissioner issues a finding on the matter and determines whether an institution handled the request properly.

AAFC received six new complaints, during the reporting period, relating to exemptions invoked on records, extensions to the original 30-day time frame and potential missing records. Two complaints, received in the previous reporting period, remain outstanding,

In all seven cases, no further action was recommended by the Information Commissioner as a result of the investigations. Five complaints have been carried forward to the 2017-2018 reporting period. These complaints remain under investigation by the Office of the Information Commissioner.

No audits in relation to AAFC's obligations under the Act were carried out during the reporting period.

7. Access to Information and Privacy training and education

During the reporting period, the ATIP Office continued with its access to information training program. Ten formal, awareness sessions were held, with some 100 employees in attendance. Training highlights include:

Other training and awareness efforts

8. Policies, guidelines, procedures and engagement

The ATIP Office has worked on open government initiatives with other branches of the Department. Our involvement entailed promoting access to government data and information for all citizens and protecting personal information.

The ATIP's Office reviewed written questions to Parliament and Audit reports for Access to Information Act considerations prior to disclosure or publication.

9. Monitoring timelines

AAFC uses an automated system to monitor the timely processing of ATIP requests. The workflow case management tool tracks all actions and due dates, stores relevant records requiring review, maintains audit logs, promotes the use of standard templates, allows extensive search capability to facilitate analysis, and generates progress and statistical reports.

The ATIP requests progress report is shared weekly with branch OPIs, the Departmental Management Committee and staff of the Minister's Office (the latter for information only). This report and related discussions serve to remind branches of their impending due dates for records retrieval and flags:

Senior management is kept apprised of the Access to Information activities through a weekly report that is prepared by the ATIP Office and shared with various governance bodies.

10. Closing

In closing, AAFC is fully committed to both the spirit and the intent of the Act to ensure openness and transparency within the Department and with the Canadian public.
