Performance results
All calls received were returned within the service standard of 48 business hours (98%).
Other information
Revenues are calculated on an accrual accounting basis, while costs are calculated on an expenditure basis, making direct comparisons between the two figures difficult. On the basis of accrual accounting, the forecast and “actual” revenues are $7,824,229, however of this amount only $2,557,590 was collected and deposited into the consolidated revenue fund. Actual revenue and full cost figures cannot be compared directly because of differences in the basis of accounting for revenue and costs. Forecasted revenues are based on the potential fees that could be collected on a yearly basis based on the number of active applications should monies become payable to the respective debtors. However, as the fees cannot be collected until the amounts owed for family support under the relevant summons have been satisfied and in some instances, monies do not become payable at all to the debtor within the life of an application, some of the forecasted revenues cannot be collected upon before the application expires or is cancelled by the applicant. Under the Family Support Orders and Agreements Garnishment Regulations, such fees are then remitted. As a result, a substantial discrepancy occurs between the forecasted and actual revenues.

As other central agencies, the Justice Canada ATIP Office has an expanded role; in addition to processing requests, the Office responds to consultations from other government institutions regarding solicitor-client information for the government as a whole. Although the User Fees Act may provide some of the performance indicators, fee waiver must be considered in light of the ATIP legislation.
