Freedom of Information

Freedom of Information

What is FIPPA?
The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) requires public organizations to protect the privacy of your personal information that is in their custody or under their control. It also gives you the right to request access to any information held by the organization, including general records and records containing your own personal information.

“Personal information” means recorded information about an individual. This may include your name, address, sex, age, education, employment history – and any other information about you. FIPPA does not apply to Personal Health Information which is information about your health or health care history. This type of information is subject to the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA).  Please contact our Health Records Department if you are seeking access or looking to make a correction to your Personal Health Information.

The purpose of FIPPA is to provide the public with access to information and to protect the privacy of each individual whose personal information we have in our custody or under our control.  Lady Dunn Health Centre has established a Privacy Officer to administer general and personal information access requests.
