Media Requests

Media requests from journalists affiliated with City Hall Press Gallery media outlets are given priority for a response. Media requests from other media and journalism students are responded to in sequence and, as such, response times may vary. Requests for large volumes of detailed or technical data and information subject to legal review and privacy legislation may take longer to compile.

The Media Relations team responds to journalist requests for City information. Media contact information for the City and our partners is in the table below.

Members of the public with questions for the City should reach out to 311. 311 provides residents, businesses and visitors with access to non-emergency City services, programs and information 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
