About this event

The Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) applies to all co-operative housing organizations for the protection of personal information and to provide a right of access to an individual’s own personal information.

Are you aware of your co-operative’s legal requirements for PIPA? What do your own co-op’s by-laws state for privacy education and the Personal Information Protection Act?

This 2 hour plain language workshop will cover the following:

  • Obtaining consent for collection, use and disclosure of personal information
  • What personal information should be collected and for what purposes
  • What information should be provided to an individual when requested by them
  • Keeping personal information secure and how long should it be retained for
  • What do to if there is an incident that involves the loss of or unauthorized access to or disclosure of personal information
  • Designating an individual to make sure you comply with the Act and that will be your co-ops Privacy Officer
  • Overview of reported PIPA Breaches
  • And more!
