Freedom of Information Requests
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) gives the public a right to request access to records held by public bodies. FOIPPA also prohibits the unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of personal information by public bodies. Some information falls under ‘exceptions’ to release; these exceptions are described in FOIPPA.
Much of the Sunshine Coast Regional District’s (SCRD) information is available through routine channels, without having to submit a formal request under FOIPPA, such as via our website or by contacting the department you think is responsible for the subject matter directly.
