Accessing Public Information

You can make a freedom of information request by simply following these steps:

Step 1: Complete a request form, or write a letter stating that you are requesting information or asking for a correction of your personal information under FIPPA or MFIPPA. (Request Form.)

Step 2: Forward the completed request form to the attention of the Freedom of Information and Privacy Coordinator at the Rainy River District School Board, 522 Second Street East, Fort Frances, Ontario P9A 1N4.

A $5 application fee must accompany your request for access to information. As well, you may be charged for the time required to locate and prepare records containing the information, photocopying and shipping costs.

Government organizations that receive information requests under FIPPA or MFIPPA must respond within 30 calendar days of receipt of a request. However, under some circumstances, government organizations may need to extend this time frame.

You have the right to appeal any decision made by a government organization in regard to your request for access to information. An appeal must be made within 30 days of the government organization making its decision. To appeal, write a letter to the Registrar at the IPC, describing why you are not satisfied with the government organization's decision. Alternatively, you may wish to use our Appeal Form. This form must be completed and mailed to the Registrar at the IPC at the address on the form. There is a $25 appeal fee when the information sought is general information. (The appeal fee is $10 when the information sought is personal information.) For more information on how to file an appeal, please refer to our brochure, The Appeal Process and Ontario's Information and Privacy Commissioner.
