  2. The $5 application fee for your written request (paid electronically, cheque or cash) has been received by the FIPP Office. Electronic payments can be made through the electronic request form when submitting a request. If paying by cheque, please make cheques payable to: "The University of Toronto"; cash payments should be made in person at the FIPP Office - do not send cash payment by mail);
  3. You have provided sufficient detail to enable an experienced employee of the University, with a reasonable amount of effort, to identify the information/record you are requesting.

If making a request through the PDF Request Form, please mail all requests for access to information to the attention of the FIPP Coordinator in the FIPP Office. The FIPP Office will contact you if your request is deficient or it needs to clarify the information you are requesting. The FIPP Office will need to verify your identity before processing requests for your personal information.
