The Corporate Information Governance section supports a city-wide framework for the management of recorded information. It includes developing policies, standards and strategic direction for the creation, security, accessibility, retention, disposition and preservation of records. It is applicable to all City departments, employees, and volunteers, as well as the Office of the City Auditor, contractors, boards, agencies, and commissions.
The section also manages the City’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) program by assigning and tracking FOIP requests and representing the City in mediations and inquiries with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner. We also process FOIP requests, provide consultation and advice to the City’s FOIP Coordinators, and conduct the “FOIP in the City” training course.
