Make a request

If you wish to access documents that do not concern your personal information, please submit your application under the RTI Act

If you wish to access documents held by the Board containing your personal information or if you wish to amend the personal information that the department holds about you, we recommend you apply under the IP Act.

If you want to couple your non-personal application with an additional request for documents containing your personal information in the same application - you can apply under the RTI Act for the entire set.

Please note, there are no application fees or processing charges if you apply for your personal information under the IP Act.  If you apply under the RTI Act - there may be cost implications.
