Legislation & Regulation Privacy Impact Assessments

When you propose new or amend existing legislation or regulations, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPPA) requires that you complete a privacy impact assessment (PIA). Complete a PIA even if there is no personal information involved in the proposed legislation or regulations.

If you need help with your PIA, contact the Privacy and Access Helpline.
