Memorial University is a public body, which is subject to the  Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 2015 (ATIPPA, 2015). The ATIPPA, 2015 requires public institutions to comply with rules relating to how and how much personal information is collected; how it is secured from unauthorized access, use and disclosure; and the use of people’s personal information.

The ATIPPA, 2015 gives people a right of access to records held by public bodies, with only limited exceptions to disclosure. The ATIPPA, 2015 provides for an independent review office to review access decisions by public institutions. The legislation prescribes the information access and privacy responsibilities of public institutions.
