Accelerate Access in Canada
As emphasis on government openness and transparency continues to increase, Canadian agencies and institutions are looking to find ways to streamline the process of responding to requests for information under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), Access to Information Act (ATIA), and Privacy Act (PA) – together referred to as Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) legislation.

ATIPXpress for FIPPA
Immediately comply with Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) with ATIPXpress. ATIPXpress can help Ontario hospitals & health organizations, universities & colleges, school boards, municipalities & local government bodies, and other organizations automate their FIPPA process and ensure compliance.
The Problem: How to stay FIPPA compliant while maximizing resources?
FIPPA requires organizations (and will soon require Ontario hospitals) to track the following access request information:
- The number of access requests received;
- The number of requests refused and the provisions of the Act relied upon for refusal;
- The number of times each provision was invoked;
- The number of appeals commenced;
- The amount of fees collected;
- Any other information indicating an effort by the institution to put into practice the purposes of the Act.
The Solution: ATIPXpress electronic Freedom of Information and FIPPA management system
Unlike manual systems that can be time consuming and inaccurate, the ATIPXpress application automatically tracks all required FIPPA metrics and generates the required annual report within seconds. ATIP tracks and automates the entire lifecycle of an access request – from request receipt to dissemination of requested documents, simply and easily.
By automating FIPPA compliance, ATIPXpress saves you time and money.
