Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act  (FOIPPA) establishes a process by which any person can request access to information contained in records under the custody or control of the Village of McBride

The Act gives individuals rights to request records from the Village of McBride and to receive them in a timely manner.  The Act also protects the privacy of individuals by placing restrictions on the Village of McBride when collecting or disclosing personal information.

The Village of McBride is committed to protecting your privacy.

The public has the right to access government information.  If the information you are seeking is not available online, the first step is to make an informal request to the department that you think might have the information you are seeking.  The records may be routinely available and may have a fee.

Request for information that is not routinely available or available from the department will require a Freedom of Information request to be submitted.

To make a FOI request download the Freedom of Request form and to email to or stop by the Village Office and ask a copy of the Freedom of request form.
