Federal Court Says it has no Jurisdiction to Hear Application About ATIA Request Administration

On June 8th, the Federal Court held that it did not have jurisdiction to hear an application that alleged the Attorney General of Canada gave notice of an unreasonable time limit extension in responding to an Access to Information Act request. The Court held it had no jurisdiction in advance of an actual or deemed refusal and distinguished a case in which the Crown had conceded that an unreasonable extension amounted to a deemed refusal.
