The Access to Information Act gives Canadian citizens, permanent residents and corporations located in Canada the right to access information in the CRRF's records that are not of a personal nature.
The Access to Information and Privacy Online Request Service offers convenient way to submit access to information or personal information requests.
This service enables individuals to make online requests for information under the control of Government of Canada institutions instead of having to print, scan and email or mail a form to the correct institution.
For information on how to prepare and submit a request under the Access to Information Act, you may download the Access to Information Request Form (PDF).
Formal requests under the Access to Information Act must:
•Be in writing (email requests cannot be accepted);
•Be signed by the requester and dated;
•Include the name, address, and a telephone number and/or email address where the requester can be contacted between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays;
•Include a $5.00 application fee made payable to the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (not the Receiver General of Canada). Payment can be made by cash, cheque or money order.
Requests must include sufficient detail to enable the ATIP Coordinator to identify the records that are being requested. Examples include, but are not limited to, time periods, file names, report titles, departments, names of individuals, etc.
There may be additional fees associated with processing requests made under the Access to Information Act. Additional fees may be incurred for search and preparation time in excess of five hours.
All requests should be forwarded to:
