One Vision One Voice: Changing Child Welfare in Ontario to Better Serve African Canadians

Know Your Rights

On January 1, 2020, Part X of the Child, Youth, and Family Services Act came into force, creating a new access and privacy framework for Ontario’s child and family services sector. The Information and Privacy Commissioner will oversee these new rules for the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

To raise awareness of access and privacy rights among, children, youth and families, the IPC has prepared a brochureposter and quick reference card.

The IPC has also developed  resources for service providers. These include a guide to Part X, a guide to tracking and submitting annual statistics to the IPC and reporting privacy breaches to the IPC.
