Freedom of Information Request Form


The Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) establishes a general right of access to records held by the City and requires us to protect the personal privacy of the people whose information we have.

Some records held by the City do not require a formal request. Council and Committee minutes, by-laws, policies, many reports and other City records are freely available. Search our website or contact the department responsible for the document first to see if you can access it without making a formal request.

If a department is unable to give you information on an informal basis, you can complete this form to make a formal request through our Clerk's Office.

To request records held by the Peterborough Police Service, please visit the Peterborough Police website for more information.

To request records held by Peterborough Public Health, please visit the Peterborough Public Health website for more information.

Please note there is a mandatory $5 application fee for requests under MFIPPA.
