Freedom of Information Requests

Sometimes the information you want disclosed is deemed irrelevant by the prosecutor. If the justice agrees, you will not be able to obtain it through disclosure. However you can still obtain the information through a freedom of information (FOI) request.

You may need to make a request to the Police Board (the police) under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act for access to records relating to training, lesson plans, internal directives, policies, procedures and the identity of various kinds of equipment used by the police.

An example of a ruling on this type of request can be found here.

FOI requests are also useful to obtain information held by third parties other than the prosecutor or police.
