The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (“the FOIP Act”) provides a right of access to all records under the control of public bodies, subject to limited and specific exceptions.
The FOIP Act is based on two principles:
the right to know and
the right to privacy
As a local public body, the Town of Slave Lake (“the Town”) complies with the FOIP Act when we collect and share information. We do this by balancing the public’s right to know and protecting the privacy rights of individuals. Although the Town is subject to the provisions of release under the FOIP Act, the Town is also committed to protecting all organizational and personal information.
