Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) establishes a process to access records and information. The Act applies to all records in the custody or under the control of public bodies like the Capital Regional District (CRD). The Act gives individuals rights of access to information held by the CRD and protects privacy by placing restrictions on collecting, using or disclosing of personal information.

Routine Requests

Records such as agendas and minutes of open meetings, bylaws, publications, and policies and procedures are most often available on our public website or upon request. Please contact the appropriate department for access to these types of information.

Formal Requests

A formal written request is required for access to records which are not routinely available.

How to File a Formal Request

Formal requests must be submitted in writing or by using the form. Please be as specific as possible when making your request as it will assist us in locating and retrieving the records in a more timely manner.
