Freedom of Information Requests
The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA), came into force on January 1, 1991. This Act applies to all municipalities, local agencies, boards and commissions including school boards, public utilities, transit and police commissions, fire departments and conservation authorities. MFIPPA determines what information is made available to the public and how it is made available.
The two main purposes of MFIPPA are:
- to provide the right of access to information held by institutions, subject to limited and specific exemptions
- to protect the privacy of individuals with respect to their personal information held by government institution
You may request access to general records or personal information (information about yourself), or request a correction to personal information. A $5.00 application fee is required for all requests.
