Request for Information and Records – Freedom of Information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information Request (FOI) is a legal process under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).  This process allows for all requests to be treated fairly and objectively.  MFIPPA  sets out that information should be made available to the public, and that certain types of records such as personal privacy of others, lawyer-client privilege etc. must be protected.  The majority of records at a municipality are considered to be public records and accessible at all times without making an FOI request.

All request for information under the Act must be made in writing to the Clerk on the Request for Information and Records Form and a $5.00 application fee is required for all requests. Additional Fees may apply as prescribed by legislation.
