About the Canada Energy Regulator

The Canada Energy Regulator is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada’s energy industry. It regulates pipelines, energy development and trade on behalf of Canadians in a way that protects the public and the environment while supporting efficient markets. The Minister of Natural Resources is responsible for this organization.

The Canada Energy Regulator (CER) was established by Parliament to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest. Before making a decision or recommendation, we factor in economic, environmental and social considerations. By considering all the evidence with these things in mind, we are able to make decisions and recommendations that represent the ever-changing interests and concerns of Canadians. This is key to achieving our vision of being active and effective in Canada’s pursuit of a sustainable energy future. We also regulate for the complete life cycle of a pipeline or power line project. The public expects us to hold the companies we regulate accountable for the safe operation of CER-regulated energy infrastructure.

For more information about the CER please visit our website.

The Access to Information Act

The Access to Information Act (the Act) gives the Canadian public a right to access information contained in federal government records, subject to certain specific and limited exceptions.

In accordance with section 94 of the Act, the head of every federal institution is required to submit an Annual Report to Parliament on the administration of the Act following the close of each fiscal year. The Annual Reports are then tabled in Parliament pursuant to section 94 of the Act. This report describes how the Canada Energy Regulator (CER) fulfilled its access to information responsibilities during the fiscal year 2020–21.

Organizational Structure

Access to information requests at the CER are processed by the ATIP Office, which reports to the Vice President (VP), Data and Information Management, as the ATIP Coordinator.

Access to information requests are received primarily through two channels; through the mail or the ATIP Online Request Service (AORS), which was established in late 2018. Requests received through the mail are logged into the CER’s records management system by the Data & Information Management department and then forwarded to the ATIP Office.

As of the end of 2020–21, the CER has 4 full-time employees, who allocated a portion of their time to activities related to the Act. This includes the Group Leader ATIP, two ATIP Officers, and one ATIP Administrator.

Delegation Order

The CER Act designates the CER CEO with the authority to exercise the powers, duties and functions of the Act. The CEO has historically delegated this authority.

The ATIP Office reports to the VP, Data and Information Management and the delegation authority has been permanently delegated.

This year, the new CEO reviewed the delegation order to ensure internal organizational alignment, appropriate oversight and operational efficiency. Under the current order, there are three Vice President positions that have been delegated full authority under the Act. They are: the VP, Data and Information Management (primary ATIP Coordinator), the VP, Regulatory Strategy and Coordination and the VP, Performance and Results (alternate ATIP Coordinators). From an operational standpoint, granting this authority to three individuals ensures that files can be reviewed and signed-off without undue delay.

See annex B for a copy of the delegation order.

Performance 2020–2021

In 2020–21, the CER received 22 requests under the Act. This is half the number of requests received in the previous reporting period.

The CER achieved a compliance rating of 91.3% for completed Access to Information requests closed within the legislated timeframe in 2020–21, this is an improvement over the previous year. The CER’s ATIP Office will continue to strive for both improved compliance rates and quality of information released.

Section 9 of the Act permits an extension of statutory time limits under certain circumstances. In 2020–21, the CER invoked extensions on 8 occasions, or on about 36% of files, a slight increase compared to 29% in the previous year. In 6 of the cases, an extension was required to conduct third-party notifications. The last 2 extensions were invoked since searches through large volumes of records made it impossible to meet the original timelines without interfering with CER operations. All of the 8 extensions were for 120 days or less.

Description:
This graph shows the number of extensions invoked by the CER in 2020–21. The CER invoked extensions on 8 occasions. All of the extensions were for 120 days or less, with 6 required to conduct third-party notifications and 2 required for large volumes of records.

The CER also received 24 new informal requests, completing 33 during the reporting period. A total of 27 informal requests were previously released packages under the Act identified on the “Completed Access to Information Requests” posted on Canada’s Open Government site.

For requests closed during the reporting period, the CER processed a total of 2,234 pages and disclosed 1,707 pages to requesters. This represents a decrease from the number of pages processed last fiscal year. The reduced workload meant the ATIP Office was able to refocus its efforts on outstanding complaint files.

Other federal government agencies and departments also consulted the CER on 18 occasions on which the records under their control related to CER activities. The CER processed 161 pages for these consultations.

The CER observed that the most frequent types of requesters in 2020–21 were the public (27 percent), followed by business and those who declined to identify (22.7 percent each) and media and organization (13.6 percent each).

This graph shows the source of requests received during each reporting period from 2016–17 to 2020–21. The CER observed that the most frequent types of requests in 2020-21 were the public (27 percent), followed by business and those who declined to identify (22.7 percent each), and media and organization (13.6 percent each).

In 2020–21, the CER closed 23 requests. Of the requests closed during the reporting period, records for 13% were fully disclosed and 65% were disclosed in part. There were no requests for which relevant records were exempted in their entirety. Of the remaining requests, 5% were abandoned by the applicant and 17% had no records associated with them.

Most of the exemptions invoked by the CER in 2020–21 fell under four sections of the Act: subsection 19(1), which protects personal information; paragraph 21(1)(b), which protect the deliberation process of public servants; paragraph 20(1)(c), which protects third party information; and section 23, which protects solicitor-client privileged information.

During the COVID-19 pandemic work continued from home with minimal disruption and a slight increase in processing time.

Reporting on Access to Information fees for the purposes of the Service Fees Act

The Service Fees Act requires a responsible authority to report annually to Parliament on the fees collected by the institution.

With respect to fees collected under the Access to Information Act, the information below is reported in accordance with the requirements of section 20 of the Service Fees Act.

  • Authority: Access to Information Act
  • Fee amount: $5 fee per ATI request
  • Total revenue: $105 in 2020–2021
  • Fees waived: $5 in 2020–2021

In accordance with the Interim Directive on the Administration of the Access to Information Act, issued on May 5, 2016, and the changes to the Access to Information Act that came into force on June 21, 2019, the Canada Energy Regulator waives all fees prescribed by the Act and Regulations, other than the $5 application fee set out in paragraph 7(1)(a) of the Regulations.

During 2020–2021, the CER Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) Office incurred $247,741 in salary costs and $9,920 in goods and services costs to administer the Act.

Training and Awareness

Training continues to be an area of focus for the CER ATIP Office. In 2020–21, the use of screensaver tips was discontinued in favor of more direct outreach training efforts. The COVID work from home environment and introduction of new technologies presented unique concerns.

Policies, Guidelines, Procedures and Initiatives

Documentation and training materials on the CER ATIP program were updated and made available through the corporate intranet, along with links to other materials, such as the Acts, Treasury Board Secretariat policies and guidance documents, and a range of information management and guidance tools.

The CER continued to examine its ATIP procedures in an effort to enable continuous improvement and to identify opportunities for efficiencies in processing access to information and privacy requests.

As an organization that values openness and transparency, the CER strives to ensure that information is made publically available without recourse to the Act. Exceptions to public access to information are limited and specific, as required by the legislation.

Summary of Key Issues and Actions Taken on Complaints

During 2020–21, there were no new complaints registered with the Office of the Information Commissioner. As always, the CER will continue to work closely with the Office of the Information Commissioner to resolve outstanding complaints in a timely and efficient manner.

No appeals were made to the Federal Court of Canada during 2020–21.

Training on the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act was offered by the ATIP Office which delivers both specialized training to respond to the needs of officers and clients, and general training to raise employees’ awareness of their responsibilities under these Acts. In this regard, the CER reviewed its ATIP training materials (i.e. tasking email, PowerPoint presentation, etc.) towards improving its training and communications with CER leadership and staff.

In addition to its online training, the ATIP Office also delivered a number of well-received presentations on obtaining meaningful consent prior to meeting recordings as part of its training program.

During 2020–21, the CER continued to require that all CER staff and contractors successfully pass the Access to Information and Privacy Fundamentals – I015 course offered by the Canadian School of Public Service (CSPS). During this reporting period, 42 CER employees and 22 contractors registered for the course with 60 completing it successfully.

The ATIP Office anticipates that increased awareness of the Act amongst employees will improve their ability to collect records, help them better identify information for potential redaction, and enable them to better support the ATIP Office’s processing of requests. The ultimate goal being release packages that are responsive to requesters.

The CER’s ATIP Officers received training by attending webinars offered by the Treasury Board‘s Information and Privacy Policy Department. The ATIP Office also participated in this year’s Right to Know week.

Monitoring Compliance

With regards to the timeliness of processing privacy requests, the ATIP Office regularly communicates progress updates to the ATIP Coordinator through the ATIP Group Leader. The ATIP Group Leader receives weekly updates from the ATIP Office regarding the status of all active requests, and has access to a central tracker that is updated on a regular basis to establish action items or flag upcoming due dates.
