Freedom of Information
In Ontario, a Freedom of Information (FOI) request is a written request for general records, one’s own personal information, or a correction to one’s own personal information, held by a government organization that is subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).
FOI requests must be received in writing by the organization holding the records. A valid FOI request must provide sufficient detail to identify the information in question, and be accompanied by a mandatory $5 application fee. Our office can assist you in formulating your request if needed.
The $5 application fee must be made by cheque or money order, payable to Ontario Cannabis Retail Corporation. Only Canadian funds are accepted. Under FIPPA’s regulated fee structure, you may also be charged for the time required to locate and prepare records, photocopying, and/or other regulated fees.
Organizations under FIPPA are generally required to respond to an FOI request within 30 days. Under certain circumstances, an organization may extend this time frame. In such cases, the party making the request will be notified.
Please submit FOI requests to:
FOI and Privacy Office
