We are committed to protecting the privacy of individuals and to the proper management of personal information under our control. A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a risk identification and mitigation process used to ensure legal requirements are met, determine how a program, initiative or activity affects the privacy of an individual, and to help avoid or lessen the possible effects on an individual’s privacy.
In accordance with the Directive on Privacy Impact Assessment, we conduct PIAs when new programs, initiatives or activities have privacy impacts, or when changes to existing programs affect the way personal information is collected, used, or disclosed. In addition, we have an institutional PIA which addresses core business functions. Copies of approved PIA reports are submitted as required to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat.
The following are summaries of PIAs completed by Ingenium:
