The Privacy Management Program Direction issued by the provincial government details the key components of a privacy management program (PMP) for public sector organizations. The below information provides an overview of the SD36 PMP.
The Privacy Officer is responsible for being a point of contact for privacy-related matters such as privacy questions or concerns; supporting the development, implementation, and maintenance of privacy policies and/or procedures; and supporting the public body's compliance with FIPPA.
How to contact the Privacy Office:
Submit any privacy questions, concerns or complaints to the Privacy Officer in writing at email: email@example.com.
All SD36 staff are required to complete a mandatory Privacy Training course to ensure they understand their responsibilities under FIPPA. Other education and awareness activities are provided, as required.
Public bodies are responsible for informing service providers of their privacy obligations when handling personal information.
Privacy reviews and, where necessary, Privacy Impact Assessments are completed for contracts to identify and mitigate risks associated with service provider management of personal information. Service provider contract language includes, but is not limited to, appropriate information use, disclosure, and disposal; security and training requirements; and notice to SD36 in the event of a privacy-related contract breach.
The electronic translation service is hosted by Google Translate. The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 50 languages, although an impressive number, this does not capture all languages or dialects. The basic translation’s goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material.
