The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act helps to make public bodies more accountable and to protect personal privacy by:
- giving the public a right of access to records, where permissible, and
- giving individuals a right of access to, and a right to request correction of, personal information about themselves.
The Act applies to all records in the custody or under the control of a public body, subject to exceptions identified in the Act. The TNRD is a public body as defined in the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
Records such as agendas and minutes of open meetings, bylaws, policies and procedures and information related to your property are often available on our public website or upon request. The TNRD has created a list of routinely released documents.
If the information you are looking for is not listed please contact our Legislative Services department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should you wish to make a request for access to records in the custody or under the control of the TNRD, please email the details of your request to email@example.com. All general FOI requests will be subject to a $10 application fee. There are no application fees for personal FOI requests. For more information, please visit FOIPPA Updates – Province of British Columbia.
The Act allows a maximum of 30 business days for us to respond to your request, except in specific cases where the time period may be extended. You should also be aware that fees may be charged for the records requested. Early on in the process, a fee estimate will be sent to you detailing the estimated charges.
