2) investigating public complaints of use and disclosure of personal information;
3) reviewing government administrative and records management practices;
4) conducting research and giving advice on issues related to access and privacy;

MFIPPA SECTION 59 details the Powers and duties of Commissioner
The IPC has a duty to the Legislature, and to us TAXPAYERS to investigate, report and STOP these offences.
Instead, they ignore South Glengarry Township Council’s multiple MFIPPA offences and support their secret personal information bank!
