Ensuring the security of personal and healthcare information
Carscallen’s Privacy Law Group advises private businesses, public sector entities and healthcare clients on compliance with their obligations under applicable national and provincial privacy laws, including Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL), the Personal Information Protection Act of Alberta (PIPA), the Freedom of Information Protection Act of Alberta (FOIP), the Healthcare Information Act of Alberta (HIA), and the CRTC’s Unsolicited Telecommunications Rules.
We offer a full range of legal services in the area of Privacy Law, including advising employers on all workplace privacy issues and assisting with investigations into employee conduct in the workplace. We also assist clients with the ongoing assessment and monitoring of personal or healthcare information in their custody, in order to ensure such information is protected and to minimize clients’ risk. In the event of a privacy breach, we can advise and assist with an investigation, and mandatory or optional breach reporting to the relevant privacy regulatory authorities.
Our lawyers have extensive experience drafting a wide range of privacy and confidentiality policies and guidelines for businesses and other organizations, and privacy-related agreements such as non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements.
We also advise clients on responding to requests for access to, or correction of, personal information and requesting disclosure of records.*This update is intended for general information only on the subject matter and is not to be taken as legal advice.
