Access to Information (FOI Requests)

A Freedom of Information (FOI) request is an official written request for information from an organization covered by theFreedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). Under FIPPA, an FOI request must be in writing and must provide sufficient detail to identify the information. A written request along with the mandatory $5.00 application fee is the most efficient way to make an FOI request. A $5.00 fee is required for making an FOI request under FIPPA and must be payable to the LCBO either by cheque or by money order. A credit card payment can be made via phone only. As well, you may be charged for the time required to locate and prepare records containing the information, photocopying and shipping costs.

To submit an FOI request, please contact:

Freedom of Information & Privacy Office
55 Lakeshore Blvd. East
Toronto, Ontario M5E 1A4
Telephone: 416-864-2462

Government organizations that receive requests under FIPPA must respond within 30 calendar days of receipt of the request and mandatory $5.00 application fee, unless the request requires clarification. However, under some circumstances, government organizations may need to extend this time frame. In such cases, the requester will be notified.
