Your Access to Information and Protection of Privacy
Access to information is everyone's right
All City of Winnipeg information should, by default, be freely and proactively available to the public unless it contains information legally required to remain confidential. Beginning in September 2015, all Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) requests that have granted access to information in full, or in part, that are NOT personal records or incident reports, will be published online and available to the public.
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), which has been in effect at the City of Winnipeg since 1998, provides for the legal right of access to records held by the City of Winnipeg and protects privacy and personal information by limiting the ways that personal information can be collected, used, and disseminated.
