Accessing City Information

If you would like to access City information, Corporate Information Management Services (CIMS) has a number of ways to help you. 

We'll provide you access to historical information at the City of Toronto Archives, process a Freedom of Information Request, and protect your personal information. 

We also manage City information on your behalf and help open up government. Our resource library is available for you to browse and use.

CIMS is a section within the City Clerk's Office.
