Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We have received some information from some very helpful users in some of our previous discussion threads.

You can find some detailed information in these previous Traveller's History - Residence Questionnaire and Residence Questionnaire- Traveller's History discussion threads.

These experiences are related to getting your traveller's history for the residence questionnaire.

According to the Access to Information Act,

The purpose of this Act is to extend the present laws of Canada to provide a right of access to information in records under the control of a government institution in accordance with the principles that government information should be available to the public, that necessary exceptions to the right of access should be limited and specific and that decisions on the disclosure of government information should be reviewed independently of government.



So, yes, it would seem that this process is legal.

To be eligible to make a request under the Access to Information Act or the Privacy Act, you must be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident of Canada or an individual or corporation currently present in Canada.

You can find a description of the process on the Treasury Board Of Canada - Access to Information Request Form and the address where it should be submitted in this listing here.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
