Privacy Office

We uphold the tradition through progressive practices and use of privacy enhancing technologies to protect your personal and health information. This includes strong organizational controls and information technology (IT) security architecture.

Our privacy and data protection practices are guided by professional codes of practice and by-laws that apply to personal health information. We recognize that information about you belongs to you and that we are simply its custodians. As custodians, our obligations include putting in place policies and practices to ensure the confidentiality and security of your information. It means that privacy and data protection is an absolute requirement when we design and deliver programs, services and technology initiatives.
