Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is provincial legislation that provides the public with a right of access to government records and protects personal privacy by prohibiting the unauthorized collection, use or disclosure of personal information by public bodies.
The District's Freedom of Information Bylaw provides for the District's administration of FOIPPA, and it outlines associated fees to be paid under S.75 of the Act.
Routinely Available Records
Routinely available records, such as Council/Committee agendas or minutes, bylaws, publications, policies and procedures, and information related to your property are most often available online. Alternatively, you could submit the information request form (see Related Document link on the right) or contact the appropriate department directly. If applicable, please include the executed Property Owner's Authorization or Property Listing agreement with your request.
Information Request Process
If you are looking for information not made routinely available, please submit a Request to Access for Records form or submit a letter identifying the information you are seeking to:
The District of Central Saanich
1903 Mount Newton Cross Road
Saanichton, BC V8M 2A9
The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (OIPC) is independent from the District and it monitors and enforces FOIPPA and the Personal Information Protection Act.
