The ATIPP Office is located in the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice has been assigned with the responsibility for the overall administration and coordination of the ATIPPA, which will involve the provision of support and leadership in the interpretation and application of the legislation. In order to help facilitate this mandate, the Department has established an Access to Information and Protection of Privacy (ATIPP) Office. While each public body is required to designate an access coordinator to process and respond to individual access requests, the ATIPP Office is responsible for ensuring that the ATIPPA is properly implemented and that it is administered on a consistent and efficient basis.
This new legislative regime has been designed to create a culture of openness and accountability in the public sector. Government and the ATIPP Office are committed to promoting this new culture and making this initiative a success.

The Office is responsible for protecting and upholding access to information and protection of privacy rights under the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPPA). The Office will investigate and mediate complaints, as well as make recommendations to government departments and agencies, boards and municipalities.
