We have a dedicated Public Information Officer who handles all of these requests making sure that the right person is consulted for the information and that a response is made as timely as possible. If you would like to make a request for public information, sometimes referred to as a public records request or a Freedom of Information Request (FOIA), please do so through our Records & Media Requests contact form and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
