Informal Requests

Residents are welcome to request information from the City.  To make an informal request, contact the department you think may have the information you are looking for.  Please review the listing of typical records produced by a local government to determine which department your request falls under.

Making a Freedom of Information (FOI) Request

If the information you are seeking is not routinely available by the department, you can make a formal Freedom of Information (FOI) request for records.

To make an FOI request:

  • Requests must be made in writing indicating the records you want. You can send us an email, use the online form below, or use this printable PDF form.
  • Be sure to describe the records as carefully and explicitly as possible.
  • Please specify whether you want to receive copies of the records or to view the records in person.
  • Deliver, mail, fax, or email your written FOI request to the following:

Privacy Officer
City of Pitt Meadows
12007 Harris Road
Pitt Meadows, BC   V3Y 2B5  
Tel: 604.465.2454

Request for Access to Records Form


Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner

The Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner (OIPC) provides independent oversight and enforcement of B.C.'s access and privacy laws.  Learn more about their mandate, jurisdiction, and how they can help you.

Not sure if your request requires an FOI?

Please review the listing of typical records produced by a local government to determine what information is available to you without an FOI request.  You may also choose to submit your request using the form supplied by the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act  FOI Application Form.   Once the FOI Application form has been completed, please submit via email.  


The Freedom of Information & Privacy Act states that the City may charge fees for the costs of providing applicants with records.  

  • Commercial applicants must pay the actual cost of providing the service.  
  • Non-commercial applicants must pay $7.50 per quarter hour, after the first three hours, for locating, retrieving and preparing records for disclosure. 

Additional fees such as photocopying and shipping also apply.  If there are costs involved in processing a formal request, we will provide an estimate before processing your application.
