Routine Disclosure Policy and Freedom of Information

Routine Disclosure Policy

In order to improve public accessibility of records and information and support improved transparency, this Routine Disclosure Policy establishes principles and procedures for releasing certain types of records and information without requiring the submission of a formal Freedom of Information (FOI) request. The policy identifies records and information that may be requested and disclosed routinely. It will also identify records and information that could be regularly and actively shared with the public. 

How to apply
