Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy

Otonabee Conservation provides a link between our member municipalities, the clients we serve, and federal, provincial, and community partners. We can help our watershed residents access information through the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.(MFIPPA)

Ontario’s MFIPPA came into effect in January 1991. The Act applies to municipalities, local boards, agencies, commissions and conservation authorities.

The Act gives you two legal rights:

  • The right to access government information, including most general records and personal information about yourself.
  • The right of protection of privacy of your personal information which exists in government records.

Otonabee Conservation is obligated to follow rules regarding personal information. These rules include:

  • Using personal information only for the reason it was collected or for a similar purpose.
  • Keeping personal information for a minimum of one year to allow you to review it and make any necessary corrections.
  • Storing and disposing of personal information in a secure manner.

To access Otonabee Conservation records, please fill out a Freedom of Information ad Protection of Privacy Form. For more information, please contact our CAO/ Secretary-Treasurer, Janette Loveys Smith at or 705-745-5791 ext. 222.
