How can I appeal an access to information decision?

Privacy and Security Statement

MFIPPA, which came into force on January 1, 1991, establishes a set of statutory obligations that must be considered when responding to formal access to information requests. There is a general right of access to records under MFIPPA; however, this right is subject to the application of exemptions that may apply to the records.

Loyalist Township Council has delegated its functions and responsibilities under MFIPPA to the Municipal Clerk. Records are disclosed to requesters in accordance with the disclosure provisions of MFIPPA.

Requests for information should clearly outline what kind of information you require. When the term "any or all information" is used in the rquest, all information banks must be accessed. Every department must initiate a complete search and all information must be reviewed by the Municipal Clerk to ensure that third party information has been deleted. When every department is involved in a search for records, the cost for the request can escalate very quickly. In order to avoid this, applicants are encouraged to make their requests very specific.
