On January 1, 2012, Ontario hospitals become subject to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). The purpose of FIPPA is to provide the general public with a right of access to information held by institutions, while protecting the privacy of individuals whose personal information is held by institutions. This site provides information to assist you in learning more about the legislation and making access requests to AMGH's Freedom of Information (FOI) Office.
Please note: Access to personal health information, such as in a patient's medical chart, is not available under FIPPA. The Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) applies to a patient's medical information and the hospital protects medical information in accordance with PHIPA. You are able to access or correct your own personal health information by contacting the Health Records department.
