FOI - Freedom of Information
The Clerks Department processes all
requests for information under the Municipal Freedom of Information and
Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).
This Act gives the public the right to
request access to government held information. The Act also protects
personal information held by government organizations and provides
individuals with a right of access to their own personal information.
Many of the municipality's records are available either online or by directly requesting the information.
Before submitting a Freedom of Information request, contact the municipality to see if the information is already available outside of the formal FOI process.
Submit your request in writing either
by letter or using the form for information under the Municipal
Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, along with the
required $5.00 request fee, payable to the Township of Ramara.
Additional fees to be applied include Photocopying (20 cents per page);
Search and Preparation Time ($7.50 per 15 minutes), etc.
The Clerk has 30 days to respond to Freedom of Information requests.
