Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIPP)

Access and Privacy Services Office

If you wish to make a Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIPP) request, the request must be made in writing or by using an Access Request Form.

FOIPP is one way of obtaining information. You may wish to try other informal means to obtain the records you are seeking before you make a request using the legislation. Often, you can get the information you want in this informal way, without using the legislation.

Whether you choose to make your request informally or under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act it is recommended that you make contact with the public body responsible for the information you are requesting.

Make sure you provide enough information on the access request form to allow the public body to identify the records you are seeking. Include your name, mail/email addresses and daytime telephone number.

A $5 application fee is charged for making an access request for general records under the FOIPP Act.  You will be notified of any additional fees for searching, retrieving and photocopying records.
