Privacy Statement

The Grant Assistance Program is committed to protecting the privacy of the personal information of grant applicants, and adheres to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).

FIPPA is provincial legislation that regulates the collection, use, disclosure, retention, destruction, security and accuracy of personal information. FIPPA also gives the public the right to request the records in our custody or control, subject to certain exemptions and exclusions. Personal information is generally exempt from the right of access by anyone other than the individual to whom the information pertains.

Privacy Office

Under FIPPA, you have the right to make a request for your own personal information and to request a correction of records containing your own personal information. For more information, please contact our Privacy Office:
