Personal Information Request
The Act gives you the right to access information and records held by City of Saskatoon about yourself or an individual you are authorized to represent.
Access to Information Request Form - online submission
PERSONAL INFORMATION: There is no fee when an individual requests access to personal information about themselves. For example:
- Personnel/employment files (if you are a current or former City employee)
- Complaints (that you have made)
- Any forms completed by you, including correspondence from you or files addressed to you
To request personal information as above, you must provide the following information:
- Your present mailing address
- The full name, including any aliases or other names used (such as maiden name)
- Types of records sought including location of records (if relevant)
- Timeframe of records
- Any other information that might help in identifying the record
Important: We will need to verify your identity to ensure we are giving access to the right person before the responsive records can be released.
PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT SOMEONE ELSE REQUESTS: You can request records for another person. Insurance agents or lawyers often make this type of request on behalf of their clients.
Important: You will have to provide proof that you have the authority to act for the person you are requesting for (e.g. written consent, guardianship or trusteeship order, power of attorney) before access to the records will be provided.
REQUESTING PERSONAL INFORMATION ON A DECEASED INDIVIDUAL:
- If a person has been deceased for less than 25 years, only the executor or executrix of the estate or, in the case of an individual who has died without a will, the administrator of the estate, may request the personal information of the deceased.
- The executor or administrator of the estate does not have an unlimited right of access to all of the deceased's personal information, but only that information which will allow them to fulfill their legal responsibilities to finalize the estate.
- Reasonable proof of death must be provided. Examples include: obituary notices, death certificates, photographs of tombstones and provincial vital statistics.
