Simply, Can someone send in an FOI request on themselves, asking for all records the RCMP have on them ? .......or have they gone full "secret police" already ?

This was what some used to do, circa 2013


Here's a link to the personal information request form for the CFC.
Use it to see what they have on you and to ensure all their info on you is correct. Cause if it's not... it's your fault. Nice eh :bsFlag: .

Big thanks to the CSSA for putting this together :cheers: .

Use it :slap: .

:D

CSSA Form - http://www.cdnshootingsports.org/2007/07/FOI_Form_July_07.pdf

Make sure you write the government institution on the personal information request form as "RCMP Canadian Firearms Program". The old one is a little dated and says CFC.

I don't want just the CFC info thought. I want it ALL...everything, in every database that the RCMP has access to.

So what kind of information would this bring back? Now I'm curious as to what they keep on people? Do they keep some kind of an Edgar Hoover type of file on you? Creepy stuff if that's the case.

A few years back, a bunch of us sent FOI requests into the firearms center to see what info they had. One guy found out they had a copy of a letter in his file that he had sent to his member of parliament....so no...it isn't just your firearms related stuff they keep there....yes...very Hooverish.

I just got my most recent File from firearms. It's 942 pages not counting the audio recordings of all my phone calls

It's 942 pages
The people I know who have done an FOI from Canadian Firearms Program -- that seems about average. 'A thick book'
One referred to the experience as 'positively scary' and was quite nervous about the utterly unexpected surveillance and things they thought were relatively anonymous that were included.

A phrase I haven't heard in a while from police is so-and-so is "known to us".

I had a few of my letters, (from C-68 era) in mine. I don't think that Anne, "The debate is over!" McLellan appreciated the tone of a lot of letters she probably received. IIRC, the word 'frustrated' was circled in one of mine.

I've never done this before. What do I put in the "Explain what you want or why you are contacting this organization." box? This? All information including but not limited to all notes, correspondence, telephone calls, memos, photos,
applications, reports, statements, registrations and including all correspondence and e-mails sent and received, with respect to myself in the hands of the Canada Firearms Centre.
