Freedom of Information

The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) requires that local government institutions 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.

Requests for Information

Many of the Township's records are available without making a formal request for information. Some records can be found on this website or are available by contacting the Municipal Office.

If a formal request is necessary, the first step is to fill out the request form. The request should include as much information and detail as possible as this will assist us with getting the information you are looking for and will help reduce the fees for search time and record preparation. 

All requests must be submitted to the Township along with a non-refundable $5.00 application fee (additional fees may be required). Once the form and fee have been paid, applicants will be provided with a response within 30 days. It is important to note that extensions may be required should the information require third party consultation or if there is a large number of records to be reviewed. 

If you are not satisfied with the Townships decision on a Freedom of Information request, MFIPPA allows applicants to appeal decisions about access to records made by the municipality. You can file an appeal by submitting an appeal form within 30 days after you receive the notice of decision.
