Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy

The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act applies to local government organizations including municipalities, police services boards, school boards, conservation authorities, boards of health and transit commissions. Municipalities are required to protect the privacy of an individual's personal information that exists in government records. It also gives individuals the right to request access to municipal government information, including most general records and records that contain their own personal information.

If you would like to make a request for records that fall under MFIPPA, you will be required to submit an MFIPPA Information Request Form.

Many municipal records, which do not contain personal information are available routinely which is called routine disclosure. These documents include by-laws, agendas and minutes.

To request a municipal document or more information about Records Management please contact the Clerk.
