Once an applicant has accessed documents, their name will be placed on the disclosure log along with a copy of the documents subject to the deletion of information that:

  • may be defamatory
  • is prevented by law from publication
  • is confidential
  • would, if included in a disclosure log, unreasonably invade an individual's privacy or cause substantial harm to an entity.If applicants don’t access documents within the access period (40 business days), the details of the documents and how to access them will be included on the disclosure log.
