As a member of the adjudication team, the position performs an adjudicative function. As the Commissioner's delegate, the Adjudicator exercises considerable decision-making authority and is responsible for deciding inquiries and issuing written orders under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) and the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA). The Adjudicator also makes preliminary decisions about substantive and procedural matters pertaining to inquiries.
