Freedom of Information Statistics

Have you ever wondered how many FOIP requests the Town of Cochrane receives?

Beginning in 2023, we post weekly updates to FOIP responses. The number and type of requests can be found below. In addition, we have posted Transparency Releases where we are able to under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act) and when we believe the  record may be of public interest.  Severed information in the document is noted in red text on the page.  The original request for records is contained in the response letter.

There are several key activities involved with processing information requests and the number of pages released to applicants is not a reflection of the staff resources, consultations, volume of records or time required to respond.

FOIP Requests by Year

The Town of Cochrane FOIP Application software assigns file numbers by calendar year and runs from January 1st to December 31st.

Annual FOIP Statistics by Year

The Province requires statistics for applications filed between April 1st to March 31st. Because of this there will be inconsistency between the annual reporting on our website and statistics reported to the Province.

Other Public Bodies

The Alberta Government publishes Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) statistics annually. This publication includes summary statistics on the number of access to information requests were received by individual local public bodies.
