The Government of Canada allowed non-Canadian citizens living abroad to make an Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) request under the Privacy Act. The new policy will vastly expand the rights of non-Canadians who are outside of Canada, bringing Canada into line with global standards on ATIP. Currently, only two groups can make an ATIP request through the Privacy Act: first, Canadian citizens and permanent residents, inside or outside of Canada; and second, any person or business inside Canada, whether a citizen or not.
