The Freedom of Information
and Protection of Privacy (FOIPOP) Act provides a formal process to obtain access to records
under the control of the provincial government, while protecting the privacy of individuals who do not
want their personal information made public. The Act strives for balance between an individualís right
to know and an individualís right to privacy.
For enquiries about the FOIPOP Act in relation to this department, contact the FOIPOP Administrator
at 424-4560 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional information regarding the FOIPOP Act and related processes can be found on the Department
of Justiceís website at http://www.novascotia.ca/just/IAP/.
