Making a Request under the Act

The City of Barrie tries to provide as much information as possible to the public without requiring a formal request under the Act. Persons wishing to access records held by the City of Barrie should first contact the department which holds the records. If information is not available informally, a written request under the Act can be filed.

There are two ways to make a request under the Act:      

  1. FOI Application Form
    Freedom of Information Application forms are available from the Legislative and  Court Services Department or can be downloaded by clicking here.
     
  2. Writing a Letter to request information
    If sending a letter, please include the following information:

    • full mailing address;
    • day time telephone number;
    • names of specific files or types of records to which access is sought, including dates of those records if possible
    Requesters should provide detailed information about the requested records as this enables staff to conduct a faster search and reduces costs associated with such research. Completed requests should be sent with the mandatory, non-refundable $5.00 application fee* (cheques should be made payable to the City of Barrie) to:

    Legislative and Court Services Department
    Records and Information Section
    70 Collier Street, 1st Floor
    Barrie, ON L4M 4T5

    *In addition to the application fee, there may be other fees that apply. The rules regarding the payment and amount of fees are set out in the Act and its regulations.
