The Canadian Standards Association’s Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information CAN/CSA-Q830-96 (the “CSA Code”) as adapted for Population Data BC, offers a principled approach to the detailed requirements found in BC FIPPA.  This code is Schedule 1 to the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act and may be found here on this website.

Population Data BC follows the CSA Code principles for the protection of Personal Information and the specific requirements set out under FIPPA in the handling of all Data it holds. Population Data BC regularly reviews its privacy policy presented in these pages, to reflect current legislative requirements and best practices.
