Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy

The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is a Provincial law that gives a right of access to information held by a municipal government.

The Act requires municipalities to protect personal information contained in their records by imposing protection of privacy requirements governing their proper collection, retention, use, disclosure and disposal. The Act is not necessary to access information that is already available to the public.
