Publicly Available Information

Proactive Disclosure

Simon Fraser University is committed to openness and transparency in its operations and activities. Located below is a directory of information SFU proactively releases on a routine or periodic basis to the public without the need of filing a formal access request to information under British Columbia's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA). As a public university dedicated to teaching and learning, research and scholarly activity, and public engagement, we routinely makes large amounts of institutional and other information publicly available on our website.

Information not listed in this proactive disclosure directory may be subject to privacy and confidentiality exceptions to the public's general right of access. If you are looking for information not listed in this directory, contact the university department or office that is likely to have the records to which you seek access. Discuss your information needs with a staff member to determine if records exist that respond to your request and if those records can be disclosed to your directly by that department or office. If the information you seek cannot be routinely disclosed, you can submit a formal access request. See How to Request Access to University Records Under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.

We appreciate feedback on our proactive disclosure efforts. If you have questions, comments or ideas about information that you believe should be listed in this directory, complete our Feedback and Comments form.
