Corporate / Freedom of Information

The Regional District office at 155 George Street is currently only accessible for scheduled appointments. No walk in traffic is permitted.

FOI applicants should phone in with inquiries or request appointments at 250-960-4400 (1-800-667-1959), or email applications to FOI@rdffg.bc.ca. If you are sick, have returned from an out of country visit in the last 14 days or have been exposed to the COVID-19 coronavirus we respectfully ask that you do not come to our office.

We endeavor to respond FOI requests in a timely manner; however, this depends on the type of information requested as well as staff resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Provincial Privacy Commissioner has directed that local governments have up to 60 working days to respond to a request during this time.

 

Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is a provincial law that balances:

  • Your right to access government information.
  • Your right to have the personal information collected from you by the Regional District protected.
