Privacy notice statement: Security video surveillance system

- Cameras are used to monitor the activities of these areas for the safety of people and for the protection of government assets.
- The images captured through the system, are collected under the authority of various Acts and legislations as required under the Policy on Government Security.
- An image may be used for identification purposes and may be disclosed to a law enforcement agency if criminal activity is suspected.
- Images of people are considered personal information.
Your personal information is administered in accordance with the Department of Employment and Social Development Act, the Privacy Act and other applicable laws. You have the right to the protection of, access to, and correction of your personal information, which is described in the Standard Personal Information Bank PSU 907. Instructions for obtaining this information are outlined in the government publication entitled Information about programs and information holdings. It may also be accessed on-line at any Service Canada Centre.
If you are not satisfied with the response to your privacy concern or if you want to file a complaint about the handling of your image being captured on camera, you may wish to contact the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada.
