Can I get personal information about someone else?
To get personal information belonging to someone else, you must submit their written consent authorizing you to receive their personal information. Consent may be provided by:
- completing the Consent for an Access to Information and Personal Information Request – IMM 5744, or
- a written statement that includes:
- the name of the person giving the consent,
- the name of the person to whom consent is being given,
- the signature of the person giving the consent and
- the date the letter was signed.
You do not need consent to get the personal information of any dependants who are under 18 years of age.
