Fee Schedule

The hospital is permitted to charge certain fees in connection with responding to an FOI access request. Section 57(1) of FIPPA outlines those costs incurred by the hospital that can be charged to the requester as fees, namely:

  • the costs of every hour of manual search required to locate a record;
  • the costs of preparing the record for disclosure;
  • computer and other costs incurred in locating, retrieving, processing and copying a record;
