Guiding Principles to Assist Requesters

In processing your access request under the Access to Information Act (the Act), the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP will:

  1. Process your request without regard to your identity.
  2. Offer reasonable assistance throughout the request process.
  3. Provide information on the Act, including information on the processing of your request and your right to complain to the Information Commissioner of Canada.
  4. Inform you as appropriate and without undue delay when your request needs to be clarified.
  5. Make every reasonable effort to locate and retrieve the requested records under the control of the Commission.
  6. Apply limited and specific exemptions to the requested records.
  7. Provide accurate and complete responses.
  8. Provide timely access to the requested information.
  9. Provide records in the format and official language requested, as appropriate.
  10. Provide an appropriate location within the Commission to examine the requested information.

How to Make an Access to Information Request

To make a request pursuant to the Access to Information Act (the Act) for information held by the Commission, you may complete the Access to Information Request Form (available in PDF or HTML format) or send a letter mentioning the Act and describing the information you are seeking to the Access to Information and privacy (ATIP) Office. Please include any relevant details to assist the ATIP Office in locating the information.

For requests for information help by other government institutions, please refer to the list of departmental ATIP coordinators.

An application fee of $5 applies and additional costs may be charged. You may send the application fee in the form of a cheque or money order made payable to the Receiver General for Canada. This application fee entitles you to five hours of search and preparation time for the requested records. You will be notified in advance if there are additional costs and you may be asked to make a deposit.
