Updated FOI Request Process Poster Now Available

The original FOI Request Process Poster (also known as the “FOI Flowchart”) has proven to be quite popular! (For more information, please see the original release announcement here: The FOI Request Process Poster)

I’m pleased to annouce that I’ve now created an updated version.

The FOI Request Process Poster is intended to be printed on large, poster-sized paper, and it may be somewhat hard to read if it is printed on regular size paper.

Understanding that most offices don’t have easy access to poster-sized printing, I would be happy to send anyone in Canada a free, full-sized copy of the FOI Request Process Poster.  If you are interested, please send me a note using the contact form.  Please ensure to include your name, your office mailing address, and how many copies of the FOI Request Process Poster you would like to request.  If you work with a team of FOI professionals, you may wish to request more than one copy.

Alternatively, you can view or print the poster yourself using the link below:

I am very happy to be giving away this updated version of the FOI Flowchart to all the readers of the FOI Assist Knowledge Base. Current FOI Flowchart users have let me know that it has become an invaluable part of their practice.

With the new FOI AssistTM software, Ontario’s provincial and municipal institutions can process and respond to Freedom Of Information requests quickly, easily, and in full compliance with applicable legislation and guidance. Read the release announcement.

I have created the FOI Assist™ software to help Ontario’s provincial and municipal government institutions of all sizes track and respond to Freedom of Information (FOI) requests. For most of my career I have been a lawyer, advising clients on commercial, intellectual property and FOI/privacy issues. From 2013 to 2015, I managed the FOI program for the Toronto 2015 Pan/Parapan Am Games Organizing Committee while serving as Legal Counsel to the Games. Prior to becoming a lawyer, I obtained a computer science degree and worked as a software developer at several well-known technology companies.
