Privacy Commissioner Tells HCDSB to Re-Think It's Video Surveillance

BURLINGTON - From a recent IPC decision published here the HCDSB gets schooled on how to properly use the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA)

The complainant, whose child attended the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School in Oakville (the School), expressed concern with the use of video surveillance at the School, which is operated by the Halton Catholic District School Board (the Board). The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner/Ontario (the IPC) finds that the Board’s collection of the personal information is not in accordance with section 28(2) of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (the Act). The IPC recommends that the Board conduct an assessment of the video surveillance system at the School in a manner consistent with the Act, the Board’s internal policy and this Report.
