Freedom of Information Access Requests: A Practical Guide for Municipalities

Event Details

November 14, 2018
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.


Hicks Morley’s Information, Data Security & Privacy Group invites you to participate in a special webinar for Municipal Privacy Coordinators.

Access requests under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act can range in complexity from those involving single page records to large muti-part requests raising multiple legal and procedural issues involving substantial volumes of documents. Municipal Privacy Coordinators are often confronted with having to make a variety of legal determinations within tight deadlines imposed by MFIPPA.

We invite you to join us in an overview of the many procedural and legal issues that Privacy Coordinators confront including third party notices, time extensions, preparing fee estimates, and transferring requests to other institutions. Participants will be provided with the webinar materials and a flow chart geared to assist identifying the common issues and streamlining the decision making process under MFIPPA. This session is open to all Municipal representatives involved in making MFIPPA access decisions.
