Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy

Privacy statement

Collection, use and disclosure of personal information
Personal information gathered by North Vancouver Recreation & Culture (NVRC) Commission is voluntarily provided by individuals in order to register for programs and memberships. If you provide us with your personal information, it will only be used or disclosed for the purposes for which it was collected or, in limited circumstances, in accordance with the provincial Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

Freedom of information (FOI) requests

NVRC, like all local government organizations, is subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act). Under the Act, you have the right to request any record in our control or custody. This includes personal records about yourself or someone you are responsible for, or general public records that are not personal and that could be released to anyone, in part or in whole.

Before you make a formal request
The information you are looking for may already routinely be made available to the public in which case a formal request is not required. Examples include: answers to questions related to Commission operations and meeting agendas or minutes; programs; publications; policies; and procedures.

You may be able to find the information you are looking for online yourself or with the help of a NVRC staff member. Staff will let you know if they have the information. If they do, but it is not routinely made available, they will confirm that you need to submit a formal request. You can also phone (604-983-6306) or email NVRC’s Freedom of Information & Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) Coordinator to determine if a formal request is required.
