​​​​​​The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the FOIP Act) requires all public bodies to make a directory that lists the public body’s personal information banks (PIBs) available to the public for inspection and copying. The purpose of making this information available is to help the public know what personal information the public body might have about them as individuals.

The purpose of this guide is to assist the public bodies with: 
• identifying PIBs, and 
• developing the list of PIBs in the custody or under the control of the public body.​
