      Whenever it is believed that a confidentiality incident may have taken place, the privacy officer takes steps to reduce the risk of harm resulting from the incident and to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. 

      If the incident presents a serious risk, the privacy officer contacts the Commission, and those whose Personal Information was involved in the confidentiality incident. Any communication with third parties to help reduce the risk of the incident will be documented. If informing an involved individual would present additional risk to any investigation, prevention, detection, or repression of a crime or statutory offence, they will not be informed of the incident until the risk is no longer present. 

      When assessing the risk of injury to a person after a confidentiality incident, the privacy officer considers the sensitivity of the information concerned, any expected consequences of it use, and the likelihood the information will be used inappropriately to determine whether the information will be adequately protected. 

      The privacy officer keeps a register of all confidentiality incidents that occur and sends it to the Commission upon request. 



      Our staff and representatives can respond to questions or concerns about Your Personal Information. If You are not satisfied with the response from our employee or representative, You may contact the Privacy Officer at the above address.
