Interpretation
1(1)  In this Regulation, "Act" means the Freedom of Information and 
Protection of Privacy Act.
(2)  For the purposes of section 1(p)(ii) of the Act, an agency, board, 
commission, corporation, office or other body listed in Schedule 1 is 
considered to be a public body.
(3)  For the purposes of the Act, "enactment of Alberta" means an Act 
or a regulation or any portion of an Act or regulation and includes a 
directive issued by the Treasury Board.
(4)  For the purposes of the Act, "meeting" means a meeting in its 
entirety or a portion of a meeting.
Criteria to be used for designating public bodies
2   The Lieutenant Governor in Council may designate an agency, 
board, commission, corporation, office or other body as a public body 
and add the name of that body to the list in Schedule 1
	(a)	where the Government of Alberta
	(i)	appoints a majority of the members of that body or of 
the governing board of that body,
	(ii)	provides the majority of that body's continuing funding, 
or
	(iii)	holds a controlling interest in the share capital of that 
body,
		or
	(b)	where that body performs an activity or duty that is required 
by an enactment and the Minister responsible for the 
enactment recommends that the Lieutenant Governor in 
Council make the designation.
Making requests
3(1)  Public bodies must make public in reasonable ways
	(a)	the addresses of all offices authorized to receive requests 
made to the public body, and
	(b)	the various methods by which those offices can receive 
requests.
(2)  A request may be delivered to any office of the public body during 
normal business hours of that office, but the time limit for responding 
to the request does not commence until the request is received in an 
office authorized to receive requests.
(3)  When a request is received in an office not authorized to accept it, 
that office must forward it to an authorized office by the fastest means 
available.
Responding to a request
4   Where a person is given access to a record, the head of the public 
body may require that the person be given a copy of the record, rather 
than the opportunity to examine it, if the head is of the opinion that
	(a)	allowing examination of the record would unreasonably 
interfere with the operations of the public body,
	(b)	allowing examination of the record might result in the 
disclosure of information that the head of the public body 
must refuse to disclose or has exercised discretion to refuse 
to disclose under the Act, or
	(c)	allowing examination of the record might result in the 
disclosure of information where that disclosure is restricted 
or prohibited by an enactment or a provision of an enactment 
that prevails despite the Act.
Oral requests
5   An applicant may make an oral request for access to a record if
	(a)	the applicant's ability to read or write English is limited, or
	(b)	the applicant has a physical disability or condition that 
impairs the applicant's ability to make a written request.
Disclosure of health care information
6(1)  The head of a public body may disclose information relating to 
the mental or physical health of an individual to a medical or other 
expert for an opinion on whether disclosure of this information could 
reasonably be expected to result in grave and immediate harm to the 
individual's safety or mental or physical health.
(2)  A medical or other expert to whom information is disclosed under 
subsection (1) must not use the information except for the purposes 
described in that subsection.
(3)  The head of the public body must require a medical or other expert 
to whom information will be disclosed under this section to enter into 
an agreement relating to the confidentiality of the information.
(4)  If a copy of a record containing information relating to the mental 
or physical health of an individual is given to a medical or other expert 
for examination, the medical or other expert must, after giving the 
opinion referred to in subsection (1), return the copy of the record to 
the head of the public body or dispose of it in accordance with an 
agreement under subsection (3). 
(5)  The head of the public body that has custody or control of the 
record may require that an applicant who makes a request for access to 
a record containing information relating to the applicant's mental or 
physical health must examine the information in person, and may not 
examine the record until a medical or other expert or a member of the 
applicant's family or some other person approved by the head of the 
public body is present to clarify the nature of the record and to assist 
the applicant in understanding the information in the record.
