In general, any information that is held by a public authority, which is covered by the Act, is potentially available to the public.
But the Act does contain a number of 'exemptions' that may be applied to prevent the disclosure of information that, if released, would, for example, infringe a person's right to privacy, or constitute a breach of confidence, or which could prejudice law enforcement or national security, etc.
Depending on the information requested, an exemption might apply to all or only part of that information. If only part of the information is exempt, you will still be able to obtain those parts of the information that are not exempt.
