What Type of Information Do We Collect About You?

To provide you with quality health care, we collect both personal and health information from you. Your legal name, date of birth, address, health card number and extended health insurance numbers are examples of personal information. Your health history, the records of your visits to the hospital and what health care we provide to you during those visits are examples of your health information. 

You have the right:

• to have your personal health information kept private and secure
• to be informed if your personal health information has been lost, stolen or inappropriately accessed
• to request to view or receive a copy of your personal health information
• to request a correction to your personal health information if you feel it is inaccurate or incomplete
• to request that we restrict the use or sharing of your personal health information. We will comply with your wishes unless it
conflicts with our legal requirements.

Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA)

PHIPA is provincial legislation that protects personal information, including health information. It sets out ten principles that organizations, individuals, associations, partnerships and trade unions must follow when collecting, using and disclosing personal information in the course of a commercial activity.
