Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act, in Alberta, aims to strike a balance between the public's right to know and the individual's right to privacy, as those rights relate to information held by public bodies.
This law was proclaimed October 1, 1995, and now affects all provincial government departments, agencies, boards and commissions, school boards, health care bodies, post-secondary educational institutions, and local government. The City of Red Deer came under this legislation October 1, 1999.
The City of Red Deer takes the privacy of our citizens’ personal information seriously. We strive to protect your privacy when we collect, use and disclose information and abide by the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. In balancing Access and Privacy, The City endeavours to operate in an open and transparent environment. Accordingly every effort is made to provide people with the information they require in a timely and efficient manner.
