Public Body:Professional Fish Harvesters Certification Board
Summary: The Complainant sought a list of all individuals certified by the Professional Fish Harvesters Certification Board, along with their contact information. The Public Body determined that the information sought was personal information and was required to be withheld by section 40 (disclosure harmful to personal privacy) of the ATIPPA, 2015. The Commissioner agreed that the information was personal information, that the disclosure of the personal information was presumed to be an unreasonable invasion of the personal privacy of the third parties, and that the presumption was not rebutted. The Commissioner therefore recommended that the public body continue to withhold the records.
