The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) provides an individual with the right to access information under the custody and control of an institution, including one's own personal information.

Individuals wanting to submit a formal request for information under the Municipal Freedom of Information Act must fill out a Freedom of Information Request Form and submit the form by mail, or in person to the Township of Strong Clerk.

Exemptions

Some records or parts of the records may not be publicly accessed based on requirements set out by MFIPPA. These exemptions are limited, specific, and protect the rights of another person or organization. 

If the Township is not able to disclose a record, we will specifically state which exemption(s) we are applying to the record(s).

Fees

In order for the Clerk to process a request under MFIPPA, a $5.00 charge applies. Payments must be made in by cheque, cash, debit or e-transfer. 

Appeals

If you are not satisfied with the Township's decision to your F.O.I. request, you have the right to file an appeal to the Information Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC) within 30 days of receiving the decision in writing to: 

Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario
2 Bloor Street East, Suite 1400
Toronto, ON M4W 1A8
