What information can I request?

The Act applies to all records (i.e. all recorded information) that are under the custody or control of a public body. The Act defines records as follows:

"record" includes books, documents, maps, drawings, photographs, letters, vouchers, papers, and any other thing on which information is recorded or stored by graphic, electronic, mechanical, or other means, but does not include a computer program or any other mechanism that produces records;

It is important to note that the Act covers access to records, and the information contained therein. It is NOT the intention of the Act that staff undertakes compiled and summarized research in order to answer specific questions. Applicants are expected to conduct their own research from any records received from the Regional District.
