FOIPPA Fundamentals

Get the answers and the expertize you need to comply with FOIPPA

Is my organization collecting, using and disclosing personal information in the right way?

Am I going too far or not far enough in protecting personal information to the required standard?

How do I respond to a privacy breach?

What are the risks and consequences of poor privacy management?

Do I know what I must release or can withhold to comply with a FOIPPA access request?

What is the prescribed process for responding to a request? Can I charge fees?

What if the applicant requests a review by the Information and Privacy Commissioner?

Cenera’s 2014 Access and Privacy Training Program addresses these questions directly and many more about your organization’s compliance with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act for public bodies in British Columbia, including:

  • Provincial government ministries
  • Provincial boards and commissions
  • Crown corporations
  • School boards
  • Post-secondary educational institutions
  • Health authorities
  • Emergency health services
  • Municipalities, regional districts, improvement districts, and local areas
  • Municipal police boards
  • Water boards and water users communities
  • Library boards
  • Professional and occupational governing bodies

All workshops are led by expert, experienced information and privacy professionals. The courses are highly interactive and will make use of scenarios, examples and participants’ input to enhance the learning experience. Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the course.
