Ministerial Regulations

Section 94(3) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act  allows the Minister responsible for the Act, to designate an agency, board, commission, corporation, office or other body as a public body by regulation.  The Minister may make such a regulation in accordance with the same criteria that apply to designation of a public body by the Lieutenant Governor in Council, but may do so only at the request of the Minister responsible for that agency, board, commissioner, corporation, office or other body.

A ministerial regulation made under section 94(3) is repealed on the coming into force of a regulation made by the Lieutenant Governor in Council which designates the body as a public body in Schedule 1 of the FOIP Regulation.
