Introduction

In this section

The Privacy Act (the Act) came into effect on .

It extends the present laws of Canada that protect the privacy of individuals with respect to personal information about themselves held by a government institution and provides individuals with a right of access to that information.

Pursuant to section 72, the head of every federal institution shall prepare an annual report on the administration of the Act within the institution. The reports are submitted to Parliament at the end of each fiscal year.

This report provides information on the activities of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) related to the administration of the Act during the fiscal year.

Mandate of the Canadian Space Agency

To provide a better understanding of the context in which the Act is implemented at the CSA, this section gives an overview of the institution's objectives and activities.

The CSA reports to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. Its mandate, as set out in the Canadian Space Agency Act, is "to promote the peaceful use and development of space, to advance the knowledge of space through science and to ensure that space science and technology provide social and economic benefits for Canadians."

Mission

The CSA is committed to leading the development and application of space knowledge for the benefit of Canadians and humanity.

To fulfil its mission, the CSA:

  • pursues excellence collectively;
  • advocates a client-centred attitude;
  • supports employee-oriented practices and open communications;
  • commits itself to both empowerment and accountability; and
  • pledges to co-operate and work with partners for our mutual benefit.

The CSA has been a source of inspiration for Canadians since its creation in . In addition to consolidating major federal space programs, it coordinates all the components of the Canadian Space Program and manages Canada's major space-related activities.

The new Space Strategy for Canada (PDF, 1.66 MB) launched in highlighted the importance of space as a strategic national asset and identified harnessing space science and technology as a priority to solve important issues on Earth. This new plan allowed the CSA to undertake a series of initiatives to support the Canadian space industry so it can take full advantage of the growth in the global space sector, while ensuring that Canada keeps pace.

More information on the CSA's activities can be found at the following: www.asc-csa.gc.ca.

Organizational Structure

In this section

Delegations of Authority

Under the Act, the head of the CSA is the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. In , some of the powers under the Act were delegated by the Minister to the incumbents of the CSA positions of Vice-President, Chief Information Officer and Access to Information and Open Government Coordinator.

During , organizational changes were put in place, which resulted in the delegations of authority residing with the positions of the Chief Information Officer and the Access to Information Coordinator. Following these changes in , the Information Management and Technologies Directorate, of which the Office of Access to Information and Personal Information (ATIP) is a part, now reports directly to the president of the CSA.

The updated delegations of authority were approved by the Minister in (see appendix). The appended grid on delegation of authorities identifies the powers delegated.

The Access to Information and Open Government Coordinator is responsible for implementing the Act on a daily basis and reports to the Chief Information Officer.

Overseen by the Cybersecurity & Information Management Director, the ATIP Office is comprised of the Access to Information and Open Government Coordinator, the Access to Information Senior Officer and a Junior Officer.

This office works closely with all sectors of the CSA to ensure the application of and compliance with the Act.

Lastly, the Act allows government institutions to provide services related to access to information to another government institution presided over by the same minister or under the responsibility of the same minister, or to receive such services themselves from any other such institution. However, no agreement for such services, as stipulated in section 73.1 of the Act, was entered into with any other government institution.

Evolving Role of the ATIP Office

In , the ATIP Office was mandated not only to process requests under the Act and to report on its administration, but also to implement the open government initiatives.

Open government is becoming a global priority in improving transparency and making information more readily available to the public. The Government of Canada is no exception in that regard and has implemented a series of commitments in which departments and agencies are taking part. Briefly, the goal is to release as much data and information as possible in a manner that is accessible, interoperable and publicly usable. This vision of transparency is closely linked to the vision for the application of the Act.

Further to a decision to link, access to information and open government and open science activities, the ATIP Office has become a one-stop shop for CSA employees wishing to share information and members of the public wishing to obtain information.

This innovative and effective pairing, which resulted from a centralization of activities, has made it possible for the CSA to optimize its acquisition and application of knowledge.

Request Processing Procedure

When it receives a request under the Act, the ATIP Office consults the appropriate Office of Primary Interest and, when necessary and appropriate depending on the case, Justice Canada, information-related communities of practice, Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) or other institutions.

The ATIP Office uses an electronic ATIP request processing system to record the administrative actions taken, to review the records in question and to apply any exemptions and exclusions.

Once the documents have been analyzed and the consultations held, the ATIP Office recommends the application of the exemptions to the Chief Information Officer of the CSA, who is responsible for approving the communication of documents disseminated under the Act. The records in response to the requests are then sent to the requesters.

Performance for

During the reporting period, the CSA processed 8 personal information requests. Of the 8 requests processed, 87.5% received a response within the legislated time limits outlined in the Act.

For more details about the processing of the requests, consult the highlights of the statistical report below. The detailed statistical report for the period of to can be found in the appendix.

Highlights of the Statistical Report

In this section

Requests Received and Processed

This year, the number of requests for access to personal information received by the CSA decreased. In fact, the number of requests received was 33 in  and 9 in , which represents a decrease of the requests.

Of these, the CSA processed 8 requests during the year, including 1 request carried over from the previous year, while 2 requests were carried over to the next fiscal year.

The following table illustrates the trend in requests received and carried over during the last five fiscal years:

Requests received and carried over
- - - - -
Carried over from the previous fiscal year 0 1 3 1 1
Received during the fiscal year 9 13 35 33 9

Provisions and Processing Times

The Act stipulates that responses to access requests must be provided within 30 calendar days. Of the 8 requests processed in , 6 requests (75%) were processed within this timeframe, while responses for 2 requests (25%) took more than 30 days. In effect, 1 of these 2 requests was extended for consultation purposes while the 2nd exceeded the legislative deadline of 30 days.

It is important to note that the Act provides for the extension of processing times for some requests if, for instance, consultations must be held or if processing the requests would interfere with the operations of the government institution (for example, a large volume of requests). This year, 1 request was extended for consultation purposes.

Pages Reviewed and Disclosed

The number of pages disclosed can vary considerably from year to year, depending on the subject of the requests and the amount of relevant documents held by the CSA.

We disclosed an average of 192 pages per file, while last year the average of pages disclosed was 134.

The number of pages processed during the year decreased. A total of 3297 pages were processed, compared to 4802 the previous year.

In total, 1 request contained less than a hundred pages, 3 requests had between 101 and 500 pages, and finally, 1 request required the processing of more than 1,000 pages.

The following table illustrates the fluctuation in the number of pages disclosed over the last five years:

Number of Pages Disclosed
- - - - -
Number of pages 1,536 3,081 3,538 1,280 5,347

Consultations and Extensions

This year, 1 request was extended under paragraph 15 (a) (ii) - consultation. This request required consultations with other federal institutions, other organizations or legal services. Note that the same request may require consultations with more than one category. The applicant for this request was notified of the extension of time, as specified by law.

Consultations Received from Other Federal Institutions

It is rare for the CSA to receive consultation requests from other government institutions or organizations relating to personal information. In , the CSA did not receive any such requests.

Administration Fees and Costs

For the reporting period, operating costs have been estimated at $114,194. Of this amount, 97% of the costs were dedicated to salary with an amount of $112,172. The cost of goods and services represented 3% ($3,022). These expenses are related to the awarding of a contract in support of privacy assessments.

Impact of COVID‑19

Throughout the year, the CSA has been able to receive and process requests, despite the exceptional situation of COVID-19. Request processing had already undergone a digital transition before the pandemic. This has made it possible to continue processing with teleworking resources. The processing of requests was possible, regardless of the transmission channels, the classification level of information and the format of the documents to be processed.

Training and Awareness

In addition to managing ATIP requests, ATIP Office staff provide CSA employees with guidance and advice on complying with the Act. The guidance and advice are presented in a personalized way based on the requests.

In addition, employees were invited to take the Access to Information and Privacy Fundamentals course (I015) given by the Canada School of Public Service, through its corporate calendar of mandatory and optional training. A total of 10 learners took the training this year.

Information sessions on the processing of access to information, personal information requests and awareness sessions on document marking at the CSA are available upon request. This year, 3 sessions were given to nearly 95 participants.

Electronic Tools

The CSA continues to use the TBS's Online ATIP Request Service to receive these requests. During -, the ATIP Office participated in training and testing for the new TBS ATIP Online Access Management Portal. The implementation of this tool took place in .

The ATIP Office currently uses an access to information request management tool which was implemented in -. After obtaining this tool, the ATIP Office was able to benefit from its functions throughout the year, which facilitated the production of reports and follow-up of access to information requests. Through TBS procurement, the ATIP Office is preparing for a new system to be implemented in -.

Policies, Guidelines, Procedures and Initiatives

The CSA's policies, guidelines and procedures for the administration of the Privacy Act are published on its intranet. In , no changes were made to these documents.

Summary of Key Issues and Actions Taken with Respect to Complaints or Audits

No complaints were received by the CSA in .

Compliance Monitoring

The time spent on processing Access to Information requests is tracked through the electronic ATIP request processing system. For CSA reporting purposes, reports, including one weekly report, are sent to senior management and others concerned by the requests.

Material Privacy Breach

A privacy breach involves improper or unauthorized collection, use, disclosure, retention or disposal of personal information. In , there were no material privacy breaches.

Privacy Impact Assessments

All government institutions that are subject to the Act and that create, sponsor or fund programs, projects or initiatives involving the collection, use or sharing of personal information, are responsible for conducting a Privacy Impact Assessment. TBS Directive on Privacy Impact Assessment supports institutions such as the CSA in this activity.

The CSA drafted two PIAs during . The help of contract agency employees was required for these assessments. A first evaluation looked at the CSA Junior Astronauts Campaign, while a second evaluated a new set of recruiting and hiring tools via video. At the end of the - fiscal year, these two evaluations were still ongoing. The one on recruitment and staffing activities using virtual staffing tools was completed in - and the second one is expected to be submitted for approval in -.

Disclosure in the Public Interest

Section 8(2)(m) of the Privacy Act allows the head of a government institution to disclose personal information without the consent of the individual concerned where, in his opinion, there are grounds for public interest would clearly justify a possible invasion of privacy, or where it is clearly in the best interests of the individual to do so. During the reporting period, the CSA did not disclose any personal information in accordance with this provision.

Conclusion

Through its ATIP Office, the CSA will continue its mandate to respond to all requests for access to personal information in accordance with the spirit and letter of the Act.
