Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy

The Legislation

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act, in Alberta, aims to strike a balance between the public's right to know and the individual's right to privacy, as those rights relate to information held by public bodies.

The Town of Ponoka takes the privacy of our citizens’ personal information seriously. We strive to protect your privacy when we collect, use and disclose information and abide by the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act. In balancing Access and Privacy, The Town endeavours to operate in an open and transparent environment. Accordingly every effort is made to provide people with the information they require in a timely and efficient manner.
