Your Access to Information and Protection of Privacy

Access to information is everyone's right

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.

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. Requests received under Part 2 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act are regularly posted online. Once completed, the responses (with the applicant’s personal information removed) are posted unless the request was abandoned, withdrawn, or transferred. In the case of requests for personal information, neither the request details nor the responses are posted.
