Freedom of Information

FIPPA has two main principles:

  1. Access to Information; and
  2. Privacy  

FIPPA recognizes the College need to collect personal information to carry out its mandate. Confederation College will collect personal information that relates directly to, and is necessary for, operating the programs and administrative activities of the College.

Our Responsibilities

The College is required to collect personal information in accordance with the rules set out under FIPPA. We must ensure that privacy interests of applicants, students, and employees are not compromised by putting into place departmental procedures to ensure our obligations under FIPPA are met.

Use of Personal Information

The College must use personal information only for the stated purpose for which it was collected; or for a consistent purpose.

Disclosure of Collecting Personal Information

The College must inform an individual when collecting personal information, why the information is being collected; and if it will be shared and with whom.

Care and Control of Information – General Guideline 

  1. Collect/record only information you need;
  2. Be objective and factual in what you record.  Avoid recording unsubstantiated or subjective comments; and
  3. Mark records containing information requiring protection as CONFIDENTIAL and treat accordingly.
