Freedom of Information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) provides a legislated right of access to all records held and controlled by the City of Fort St. John, or any other public body, and regulates how the City manages personal information.  It enables the public to request and obtain copies of records, and provides the right of protection of the privacy of your personal information.


How to Request Information from the City of Fort St. John:

If you would like access to records held by the City that are not readily available on the City’s website, you may request them by filling out a Freedom of Information request for access to records application form (at the bottom of this page).  Your request should clearly describe the records you are requesting.  If the records you are requesting are routinely available to the public then they will be made available to you without having to submit a FOI request.  The flowchart on this page identifies some of the more common requests for information.  If the records are covered by the FOI legislation, then the City will respond to your request within 30 business days upon receipt of your request, except in special circumstances where limited extensions may be made.


The application form can be submitted to:

Director of Legislative and Administrative Services or Deputy City Clerk
