FIPPA gives members of the public a general right of access to records in the custody or under the control of governmental institutions, including Humber College. There are limited and defined exemptions to this general right of access. Staff and faculty looking for more information on FIPPA can refer to our FIPPA Tip Sheet.
Members of the public may request access to records in the custody or control of Humber College by submitting a request in writing, accompanied with a $5.00 application fee. For more information on making a freedom of information request please refer to the “How to make a request” section below.

Prior to submitting a request for information, you may want to review the College’s Record Retention Schedule to understand the types of records the College collects.
