Freedom of Information (FOI)
The Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act (“the Act”) gives the public the right to access records held by the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District (SLRD).
The Act balances the public’s right of access with the legitimate need for confidentiality in limited and specific circumstances. Whenever possible, information held by the SLRD should be available to the public. However, a record may be withheld if the information is exempted by the Act.
To make a Freedom of Information (FOI) Request, please complete and return the form linked below:
- SLRD Bylaw 673 - Administration of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act
- For more information on BC's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, contact the provincial Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia.
Please note that, as a result of a legislative amendment made by the Province of British Columbia in November 2021 and in addition to any fees as identified in the SLRD’s Freedom of Information Bylaw No. 673, 1998, there is a non-refundable $10.00 fee in respect of each FOI Request. Upon receipt of a FOI Request, the SLRD will provide an invoice for the $10.00 fee, payment of which is to be received by the SLRD before starting to process the FOI Request.
The preferred forms of payment of the $10.00 fee are either by cheque or by Interac e-transfer. (Unfortunately the SLRD is unable to accept payment of the $10.00 fee by credit card.)
