MSA Designation under FOIP Act

The MSA is a “public body” pursuant to the Freedom of Information and Protection Act, R.S.A. 2000 c. F-25 (the “FOIP Act”).  The FOIP Act establishes certain rights for access to documents in the custody or control of the MSA, subject to certain enumerated exceptions.  This collection of documents would include all records, not just those records created or received after the MSA designation.

The MSA recognizes that it receives commercially sensitive or confidential information from market participants as part of its mandate to monitor, surveil or investigate.  The MSA will be vigilant in not disclosing information which is properly exempt from disclosure under the FOIP Act.
