Finding: PIPEDA access right exists during litigation

In a finding under PIPEDA published on the OPC website, the Assistant Privacy Commissioner of Canada found that an airline's obligation to provide an individual with access to his information continues to exist even if there is litigation pending between the applicant and the organization. See: Commissioner's Findings - PIPEDA Case Summary #352: Airline delays granting access to personal information, citing ongoing litigation (September 8, 2006).

It is also worth noting that the Commissioner's office had to commence an application before the Federal Court in order to get the airline to follow her recommendation.
