FOIP Request - Personal Information

If you want to access your Personal Information, you will need to fill out and submit a Request to Access Personal Information Form.

Fees and Timelines

There is no initial fee for a request to access your Personal Information.  However if the costs of producing a copy of the requested documents exceeds $10.00, you will be charged accordingly.  For example, if the fee for photocopying is $0.25 per page then any request involving more than 40 pages will result in a fee.

Should there be any fees to process your request, you will be provided an estimate prior to any work being started. 

All fees are in accordance with Schedule 2 of Alberta Regulation 200/95 and the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Regulation, Section 12 (1), (2)-(3).

While the City of Grande Prairie is committed to responding to and completing all FOIP requests as quickly as possible, the FOIP act does allow for up to 30 days for a response, including an extension of an additional 30 days under these circumstances:

  • not enough detail is provided to properly identify requested records;
  • a large amount of records are requested and location and reproduction of these would unreasonably interfere with operations of the public body; and
  • more time is needed to consult with a third party or another public body.

Submission Information

When filling out your request, please give as much detail as possible:

  • describe the records you are wishing to access;
  • list all departments of the City of Grande Prairie where this information may have been collected and stored;
  • include a specific date or time period involved, with a start and end date; and
  • sign and date the request.

Please note you will need to provide Government Issued Photo Identification before any documents can be released to you.

Additional details about making an application for Personal Information can be found on page 2 of the Request for Access to Personal Information Form.
