The FOIPPA provides you with the legislated right to access government records, while also protecting your right to personal privacy by prohibiting the unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of your personal information.  

Records: all information created or received in the course of business activity and maintained as evidence of those activities, regardless of their digital or physical format (e.g., Official Program Transcripts), not including a computer program or any other mechanism that produces records. Records can also include statistical analysis of SkilledTradesBC’s data. 

Personal Information: recorded information about an individual other than business contact information. Examples include an individual’s name, address, email address or telephone number (see more examples here). You must obtain signed consent if requesting personal information for anyone other than yourself.
