Welcome to Ontario’s most comprehensive public repository of completed freedom of information requests. It contains details of more than 75,000 requests for public records made to 28 Ontario ministries and the Premier’s Office since 2014, including key information on the wording of the original requests and whether records were released. Through a few simple searches, users can discover the existence of records already released to a previous requestor. This form can then be used to request those records from the ministry using the unique file number associated with the record.

Patient Files

To give the Ontario public an inside look at the failures and triumphs of the province’s hospitals, we've published several years’ worth of patient-survey data obtained for the first time through dozens of freedom-of-information requests. Included are scores showing how patients rated their care, and how hospitals compared to one another on those patient ratings. We are also sharing anonymized comments written by patients and their loved ones.
