Freedom of Information (FOI) requests

BC's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) allows the public the right to request a copy of any record within the custody or control of Fraser Health. The spirit of FOIPPA is to promote transparency and trust of Fraser Health by the public. A record is defined as any form of recorded information, whether physical, digital, written, or video. Fraser Health has a legal duty under FOIPPA to assist all requestors and respond openly and in a timely manner.

You can make your request in writing, or, alternatively, you can complete this FOI Request Form and send that to us at:

Please note, there is a $10 fee for making a Freedom of Information request for records that are general in nature. There is no charge for making a request for records that are personal e.g. employee records. This fee is being charged in accordance with s.75(1)(a) of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). If you have any questions about the fee implementation, the FOI process, or need assistance making your request, you can send an email to FOI@fraserhealth.ca, or leave a voicemail by calling 236-484-1479.

A Freedom of Information request does not replace any existing method of requesting records. If a record can be obtained via another method, your request will be re-directed to that service. Information on other types of record requests can be found below. Health records cannot be requested under a Freedom of Information request, see below for details on how to request a copy of your health records.
