Freedom of Information Requests

As a member of the public, you have the right to request any information held in custody or the control of Niagara Region.

Open Government and Routine Disclosure

We are doing business differently. To do this, we are providing data online. This will help foster innovation, investment and entrepreneurship. Before submitting a formal request:

  1. Search the website to see if the information is already available
  2. Contact the department as staff can often provide the information without a freedom of information request, saving you time and money

If the information is not available online or through the department, submit a Freedom of Information request below.
