The main role of Laurier's Privacy Office is twofold:

  1. Provide public access to university records and information.
  2. Protect the personal privacy of the university community in compliance with Ontario’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) and the Personal Health Information Privacy Act (PHIPA).

The Privacy Office provides assistance and advice to the university community regarding FIPPA and university policies relevant to access and privacy.

Note: Students, applicants and others who give personal information to the university should read our Notice of Collection, Use or Disclosure of Personal Information.

University Privacy Policies

Laurier’s guidelines in policies "10.1 Information Availability and Privacy Protection," "10.2 Student Records" and "10.3 Responsible Use of Video Surveillance Systems" provide rights to access and limitations to the collection of information.

You will find, among other things, that subject to a few exemptions, the university’s privacy policies give every member of the faculty, staff and student body of the university access to records containing their personal information. An individual may request access through the office that holds his or her personal information. An individual may also request correction of his or her personal information where the individual believes there is an error or omission and reasonable proof can be provided to substantiate the error or omission. The university’s guidelines also restrict the collection and use of personal information. The university undertakes to collect and record only such personal information about an individual as is either reasonably necessary to the proper administration of the university and its academic and other programs, or is required by virtue of data collection or reporting requirements lawfully imposed upon the university, as noted in the Notice of Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
