“I have had the opportunity to work closely with Cenera over the past 4 years, developing a stronger appreciation for privacy laws in Alberta. Cenera has been instrumental in assisting our organization to develop various policies and procedures around FOIP specific to department needs within the organization. In addition, we engaged the services offered by Cenera to conduct multiple, department specific training sessions to address gaps that were identified to ensure compliance with the FOIP Act. The Cenera team is extremely engaging and passionate about what they do, you’re not just a client to them. They are very responsive to customer needs and strive to ensure that the customer feels supported and confident in decision making processes.”
