How do I make an information request?

There are two ways to request information from the Regional District:

Informal request via routine channels:

Since the majority of the Regional District's information is available through routine channels, you should start by making an informal request. To do this, contact the department that you think might have the information you are looking for.

Formal FOI Requests

If the information you are seeking is not available through routine channels, then you may make an FOI request for records containing the information.

Unlike routine requests, formal FOI requests must be made in writing. Your request must provide sufficient detail to assist staff in locating and retrieving the records. You must also indicate whether you want to receive copies of the records or to view the records in person.

Using the FOI Application Form (PDF) is highly encouraged because it contains the minimum requirements to process the request.

You may deliver, mail, fax or email your FOI request to:

P.O. Box 978 Salmon Arm, BC V1E 4P1
