Freedom of Information
Your Information Rights
Under the BC Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, RSBC 1996, c. 165 hereafter referred to as the "Act", any person who makes a Freedom of Information (FOI) request has a right of access to records in the custody or under the control of the Village of Pemberton, or any other public body. This right of access does not extend to information which is exempted from disclosure under Division 2 of the Act. However, if the information exempted from disclosure can reasonably be severed from a record, an applicant has the right of access to the remainder of the record.
If research of the requested record takes in excess of three (3) hours, the fourth and subsequent hour(s) are subject to the payment of a fee in accordance with the Schedule of Maximum Fees. Additionally, fees may apply for creating, copying, and delivering records.

Routinely Available Records
A written request for access to records is not required if a record is routinely available. A routinely available record may be obtained by asking the the department that holds the record to provide it.
Routinely available records include those that have been released to the public or are available for purchase by the public, records of public meetings, and records that contain no personal or proprietary information. If you are unsure if a written request to access records is necessary, please email Corporate & Legislative Services.
