Most common topics from the public

The most common complaint received from Canadians in fiscal year 2014-2015 concerned communications received from political parties or Members of Parliament. Specifically, complainants expressed concerns and, in many cases, frustration regarding the fact that political entities had obtained their personal information – in particular their phone numbers and email addresses – and had been in contact with them. Many also objected to what they saw as public resources being used for partisan advertising. These issues comprised 31 complaints from the public.
