Proactive disclosure of information, made public so that Canadians and Parliament are better able to hold the government and public sector officials to account.

COVID-19 Update

Possible delays in treating your request

Openness, transparency and accountability are guiding principles of the Government of Canada. However, our ability to respond to requests within the timelines mandated by the Access to Information Act and the Privacy Act may be affected by the exceptional measures put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect the health and safety of Canadians. Access to information and personal information requests received from the public continue to be important to us.

We presently have very limited access to requests received by mail. In order to ensure the most efficient processing of your request, we strongly encourage the electronic filing of requests, through our online request form.

We will continue to make reasonable efforts to respond to requests, in accordance with operational realities. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this period as we all navigate these unprecedented challenges.

In order to continue meeting the Canada Revenue Agency requirements, VAC will continue reporting the T1204 slip information to Canada Revenue Agency. Please contact the Canada Revenue Agency for any general questions about T1204 filing.
