Summary of the FOIP Act
The FOIP Act is based on two essential principles: the right to access information and the right to privacy. Parkland Regional Library is committed to complying with the FOIP Act and supporting its principles.
- You have the right to access information that Parkland Regional Library has about you.
- You have the right to request Parkland Regional Library correct personal information it has about you.
- The Act controls the way in which Parkland Regional Library may collect personal information from you, controls the use that Parkland Regional Library may make of your personal information and controls how Parkland Regional Library can disclose information about you.
- You have the right to request independent review of any issue related to FOIP by the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner.
Parkland Regional Library has a FOIP Coordinator. Requests for information can be made directly to the FOIP Coordinator by completing a FOIP Request Form.
General requests, or requests for non-personal information, require a fee of $25 payable to Parkland Regional Library. Requests for personal information do not require an initial fee. If the request is made on behalf of another individual, an Authorization of Representative Form must be submitted.
