Case Report – IPC asserts jurisdiction to scrutinize exclusion claim

In the first case to consider the new exclusion for research-related records in the Ontario Freedom of Information and Privacy Act, the IPC held that it has jurisdiction to order production of records claimed to be excluded and otherwise inquire into the claim. The University had resisted production of records in four requests where the research-related nature of the records was clear on the face of the requests.
