Access to Information and Privacy

As stated in the Letters Patent of its incorporation, the Federal Public Service Health Care Plan Administration Authority is subject to the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act, as amended from time to time.

The Government of Canada has launched a new service to submit ATIP requests online. This service helps you search all 265 institutions, find the right one and even look through past requests.

Go to the ATIP Online Request Service to start your ATIP online request with the new Government of Canada service.
