  • Order PO-4050 (Re Ministry of Natural Resources & Forestry; July 20, 2020)

    The names of all individuals registered as fur trappers in a particular district do not qualify as personal information. The names appear in a business context, which is the commercial activity contemplated under the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act, 1997. Disclosing the names would reveal that the individuals are licenced to trap furbearing mammals in a specific area, and that they can sell the pelts or hides.

  • Order MO-4107 (Wilfrid Laurier University; January 27, 2021)

    The requester sought emails from an individual who was both an employee of, and a student at, the university. The university has bare possession of the records because they are on the university’s email system. However, the records are not in the university’s custody or control. The university has no authority over the records’ creation, content, use and disposal, because the records belong to the student in their capacity as a student and do not relate to the university’s mandate and functions.
