Protecting personal information

Under Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA), organizations must take reasonable measures to protect the personal information they hold.

Services and information

Under PIPA, organizations must take reasonable measures to protect the personal information they hold.

Under PIPA, you have a right to access your personal information held by an organization and to ask an organization to correct it.

Some non-profit organizations are not subject to PIPA, except for information collected, used or disclosed for commercial activity.

Condo corporations are subject to PIPA and must follow certain rules regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

How trade unions can collect, use and disclose someone’s personal information under PIPA.

When an organization collects personal information, it is responsible for keeping it safe. There are specific requirements to protect information, be accountable to the public in handling personal information, and to provide individuals with their own personal information upon request.
