Freedom of Information

Freedom of Information

The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act applies to municipalities, local boards, agencies and commissions. This may include information held by a city clerk, a school board, board of health, public utility or police commission.

The Act requires that local government organizations protect the privacy of an individual's personal information existing in government records. It also gives individuals the right to request access to municipal government information, including most general records and records containing their own personal information.
