Privacy Impact Assessment Summary - Immigration-Contribution Accountability Measurement System (iCAMS) - Tracking of Overseas Orientation Session Graduates
Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s (CIC) Immigration-Contribution Accountability Measurement System (iCAMS) is a web-based application which supports key Government of Canada commitments related to performance measurement and the evaluation of settlement and resettlement contribution programs. iCAMS is used by CIC funded Service Provider Organizations (SPOs), to capture and transmit client and program information.
CIC expanded the delivery of settlement programming in overseas locations in order to provide information as early as possible for the settlement process. The Foreign Credentials Referral Office (FCRO) was created within CIC to guide, monitor and facilitate the implementation of foreign credential recognition (FCR) processes in Canada by providing information, path-finding and referral services to internationally trained workers. Through contribution agreement funding, the FCRO has engaged a service provider to deliver these services through the Canadian Immigrant Integration Program (CIIP) to prospective immigrants while they are still in their home countries.
The “Tracking of Overseas Orientation Session Graduates” (TOSG) is the newly expanded iCAMS module that enables overseas data entry.
The Privacy Impact Assessment identified a number of privacy risks for which measures were recommended and implemented to address the issues. Development of guidance and support tools was also identified to further mitigate risks.
