Freedom of Information

Under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA), individuals have a right to request information from Wellington County. Anyone can submit a request for information and there are no restrictions based on age or where you live. 

You can submit a Freedom of Information (FOI) request if you want to:

  • Access general records held by the County of Wellington
  • Request your personal information
  • Correct your personal information
  • Access another individual's personal information (with appropriate authorization or consent of the individual) 

Proof of identity must be provided if you request personal information records. Please note that the Ontario Health Card is not an acceptable piece of identification. Staff will contact you if proof of identity is required. 

There are some exceptions to what you can obtain through the FOI request. All requested records are reviewed by the Access and Privacy staff in the Clerk's Office in compliance with the Act.

How to make a request

Please submit:

  • The completed application by mail
