    Access to Information


    The Access to Information Act , guided by the principles that government information should be available to the public, subject to certain specific and limited exceptions, provides individuals and organizations with a right of access to information in records under the control of government institutions. 

    The Privacy Act helps to ensure that the right to individual privacy is respected by government institutions by limiting the collection, use and disclosure of personal information. It further gives individuals the right to access the personal information about themselves held by these institutions. 

    Requests under the Access to Information Act are initiated through either an Access to Information Request Form, available from the Treasury Board of Canada's website, or by submitting a clearly written request in the form of a letter explaining what records are being requested; accompanied by a $5.00 cheque or money order made payable to Marine Atlantic Inc. to cover the application fee. 

    Requests under the Privacy Act must be submitted in writing using the  Personal Information Request Form, available from the Treasury Board of Canada's website; or by submitting a clearly written request in the form of a letter. There is no application fee associated with Personal Information Requests.
