So in your example, Johnny211 will be the person contacted by the ATIP coordinator to search his email account for all messages relating to sleeping dog or the details of your request.  

In the past, I have attempted to bypass this process so the person is unaware of the enquiry but it does not work.  The person will be made aware of your request.  

You may want to consider rewording your request so the CM is not singled out.  For example;  I am requesting all documentation in the possession of VAC and it’s employees that references me ( sleeping dog).
it’s too late, the request already went in, I was just wondering if the Cm will be notified that I am building a case against them

All the names of Vac employees who worked on it, where visible. VVV...
oh I know I’ll get all paperwork with my name attached to it but suppose johnny211 was my Cm, and I asked for all correspondence between the two of us, does vac also notify johnny211 that there has been an inquiry about them.? I guess there is no way to know

Sleeping Dog, i am not sure if you are aware but you can also make a Privacy Act request for this information and it does not cost you any fees.

If you are asking for copies of emails sent or received by a VAC employee then he/she will be made aware of your request. Usually, it is the VAC employee who provides this information to the ATIP co-ordinator. (On a personal note, I have taken issues with this process with another Government Department because their is nothing stopping this employee from choosing what information is disclosed and he/she will not disclose information that will make him look bad).

Good luck with your request

Does anyone know if you request all information regarding yourself and VAC and or a specific VAC employee , if that employee is officially notified that a collection of data is being conducted on them.?
