How to File an Application to Omit Information (s. 40)
Who can file an Application to Omit Information:
An individual may file a request to omit or obscure some or all of the individual’s primary identification information in publicly accessible information in the LOTR, if the individual believes that making that information publicly accessible could reasonably be expected to threaten the safety or mental or physical health of the individual, or a member of the individual’s household.
An application to omit information may only be made if the transparency report containing the information to be omitted has been filed.
