Routine Disclosure of Information Plan

June 2017 | Toronto Fire Services Division

Introduction

Access to records held by the City of Toronto is regulated by the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA). The public has a right to see most City records, and to get copies of them (fees may apply). There are some exceptions to public access.

Records are made available by:

  • Routine disclosure: Divisions automatically make information available to the public when it is requested, and by publishing it online or in a printed form such as brochures and reports.
  • Freedom of information request: When information is not available routinely, the public may submit a freedom of information request to the City Clerk’s Office, Corporate Information Management Services.

Routine Disclosure Plan

Toronto Fire Services Division supports open, transparent, and accountable government through the establishment of routine disclosure practices for information it has created and holds about its program and services.

Information which is protected through the MFIPPA (Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act) will not be disclosed.
