Privacy

Our Centres respect the privacy of clients, partners, affiliates and anyone with whom we conduct business. Information is collected in accordance with current legislation including Canada’s anti-spam legislation (CASL). Persons/companies conducting business with, or seeking the programs or services offered by our Centres, are asked to provide consent and/or opt-out of receiving electronic communications from us that are not directly related to any work we may be doing for you. Subscribers have the option to add, update, modify, or cancel subscriptions at any time.

Please know that any information gathered is for the sole purpose of providing persons/companies the best and most comprehensive service and information available per their interests and/or relationship with one or more of our Centres. We do not share personally-identifiable information with third parties, unless required by law, or unless explicitly requested by a visitor. We recognize that your information is valuable and we take all reasonable measures to protect your information while it is in our care.

Privacy - Online and Paper Forms Related to Employment Services

Safeguarding clients’ personal information is important in the delivery of Centre programs and services. We are bound by several Acts and Codes to protect your information: Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) and Canadian Standards Association’s (CSA) Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information.


  1. The Centre for Skills Development collects your information on behalf of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities (MTCU). The Ministry uses your personal information to administer and finance Employment Services at various Centre sites.
  2. Client information is stored online in the Ministry’s secure Employment Ontario Information System.
  3. Paper copies of client files are stored in locked filing cabinets and offices, and archived files are stored in a locked document storage room.
  4. Employment Services delivery is funded by the Ministry, in part with funds provided by Canada under Part II of the Employment Insurance Act. The Ministry is required to collect your social insurance number to provide reports to the Canadian government to allow it to monitor and assess the Employment Insurance Program. 
 
Information you provide to Centre sites is only used for the delivery of government-funded programs.

When signing documents, clients are providing government Ministries permission to use their information:
  1. Employment Services at the Centre may disclose, transmit, or examine records which may be needed for the purpose of developing an employment plan, participating in volunteer work, a job trial, information gathering, paid employment or self-employment. Information may be provided to other service providers and potential employers as part of the service.
  2. All information disclosed within sessions is confidential and will not be revealed to anyone outside of the above groups without your permission, except where reporting is required by law (risk of harm to self or others, and/or suspicion of child(ren) being harmed or at risk).
