In Canada, businesses have to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) which regulates how they may collect, use and disclose the personal information gathered as they do business.
In Ontario, the protection of personal privacy is one of the key principles of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) and the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).
If you have an unresolved privacy or data use concern that we have not addressed satisfactorily, you may refer to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. Find more information at https://www.priv.gc.ca/en/report-a-concern/
