Introduction

I. Privacy Act

The Privacy Act (the Act) gives Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada the right of access to information about themselves held by the federal government with certain specific and limited exceptions. The Act protects an individual's privacy by setting out provisions related to the collection, retention, accuracy, disposal, use and disclosure of personal information.

The Act requires the head of every federal government institution to submit an annual report to Parliament on the administration of the Act following the close of each fiscal year. This annual report is prepared and is being tabled before each House of Parliament in accordance with section 72 of the Act. This report summarizes how the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has fulfilled its privacy responsibilities during the fiscal year 2017-2018.

II. About the Public Health Agency of Canada

PHAC's mission is to promote and protect the health of Canadians through leadership, partnership, innovation and action in public health.

The role of PHAC is to:

  • Promote health;
  • Prevent and control chronic diseases and injuries;
  • Prevent and control infectious diseases;
  • Prepare for and respond to public health emergencies;
  • Serve as a central point for sharing Canada's public health expertise with the rest of the world;

Privacy delivery and governance

Privacy protection and the appropriate management of personal information, including personal health information, are extremely important for Canadians and PHAC. PHAC takes its role in the management of personal information seriously and has taken steps to raise awareness and implement processes to comply with the Privacy Act. These are outlined in this report.

Privacy Act requirements are led out of the Privacy Management Division and the Access to Information and Privacy Division. Both Divisions are housed in the Planning, Integration and Management Services Directorate of the Corporate Services Branch at Health Canada (HC).

In 2017–2018, the Act was administered at PHAC by 4.39 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees with the support of 0.42 FTEs in consultant services, as well as part-time and casual employees at 0.37 FTEs for a total of 5.18 FTEs. These figures include administrative support, management, reporting, monitoring and policy resources, and overhead cost which contribute to the overall support of the operations of the application of the Act.

I. Privacy management division

The Privacy Management Division (PMD) strengthens capacity and expertise supporting PHAC programs that collect, use, disclose, retain and dispose of personal information.

The Division's key areas of work include:

  • Developing corporate privacy policies, guidelines and practices that promote a culture of privacy;
  • Actively promoting privacy awareness through both on-line and in-person training;
  • Working with programs to complete, monitor and report on privacy impact assessments and privacy breaches;
  • Reviewing Memorandum to Cabinet and Treasury Board submissions to ensure privacy requirements are met;
  • Coordinating PHAC annual input into Info Source, including the development and registration of Personal Information Banks;
  • Liaising with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada on privacy aspects of new and proposed programs, legislation/regulations, policies, privacy impact assessments, breaches and complaints;
  • Monitoring privacy policies, and practices; and
  • Liaising with other federal departments, agencies, provincial ministries of health and other key partners regarding privacy issues within the health portfolio to provide informed advice to clients.

II. The Access to Information and Privacy Division

The management of requests and associated complaints under the Privacy Act are led by the Access to Information and Privacy Division. The ATIP Division is responsible for privacy legislative requirements pursuant to the Act such as:

  • Responding to privacy requests within the statutory time frame as well as meeting the duty to assist requesters;
  • Promoting staff awareness and providing training on the Act;
  • Preparing the Annual Report to Parliament;
  • Supporting other forms of information sharing by PHAC by ensuring the appropriate identification and redaction of personal information (e.g., documents for litigation, information disclosure, and relating to human resource issues); and
  • Liaising with the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, other federal departments and agencies, provincial ministries of health and other key partners regarding the application of the Act to develop relevant policies, tools and guidelines.

Delegation of authority

The most recent delegation order for the Privacy Act was signed by the Minister of Health on November 25, 2015. In keeping with Treasury Board Secretariat recommendations on best practice, the delegation order extends authorities to multiple positions including the Coordinator, the Corporate Services Branch's Assistant Deputy Minister and Director General of Planning Integration and Management Services Directorate. As appropriate, certain administrative authorities are delegated to various senior levels within the ATIP Division and Privacy Management Division to support the effective and efficient administration of the Act. HC, within the shared services partnership agreement, provides ATIP services to PHAC under this delegation of authority.

The Delegation Order is attached as Appendix A.

I. Statistical report

This section includes an interpretation and explanation of the data contained in PHAC's statistical report which summarizes privacy-related activity for the period between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018 (Appendix B).

II. Number of privacy requests and case load

Requests under the Privacy Act

The number of requests received decreased in the 2017–2018 fiscal year; 49 requests were received compared to 62 in 2016–2017. The number of pages reviewed has fluctuated considerably over the past two years. In 2017–2018, 245 pages were reviewed, an 86% decrease from 2016–2017.

Federal institutions Number of consultations completed Pages reviewed
Total 3 27

III. Disposition of requests completed

Completed requests were classified as follows:

Disposition of requests completed by percentage
Disposition of requests Requests completed by percentage
Request Abandoned 53%
No Records Exist 31%
All disclosed 14%
Disclosed in part 2%
All exempted 0%
All excluded 0%
Figure 2. Disposition of completed requests
Figure 2. Disposition of Completed Requests

A large percentage of Privacy Act requests made to PHAC are abandoned, mainly due to the requester's confusion surrounding the mandate of the Agency and the information that it holds. Most of these "abandoned" requests concerned personal medical records that fall under provincial jurisdiction and are not held by PHAC. Requesters are advised of these details.

IV. Exemptions invoked

Sections 18 through 28 of the Act set out the exemptions intended to protect information pertaining to a particular public or private interest. Section 22, Investigations, accounted for all exemptions invoked in 2017–2018.

Principal exemptions applied
Exemptions Number of times applied
Section 22 – Law enforcement and investigation 1

V. Exclusions cited

The Act does not apply to personal information that is available to the public (section 69), nor does it apply to confidences of the Queen's Privy Council (section 70), with some exceptions. Requests containing proposed exclusions under section 70 require consultation with the Department of Justice, and potentially the Privy Council Office. In 2017-2018, PHAC did not exclude any information under either section 69 or 70.

VI. Completion time

PHAC tracks the disposition of closed requests and the length of time taken to process them. Of the total caseload of 53 requests, PHAC completed 51 cases and carried over four active requests to fiscal year 2018–2019.

PHAC was able to respond within 30 days or less in 90% of completed cases. Of the remaining requests, 6% were completed in 31 to 60 days, and 4% in 61 to 120 days. No requests required 121 days or more.

VII. Extensions

There was one extension taken on one (2%) of the 51 completed requests.

VIII. Translation

There were no requests for translation of records responsive to Privacy Act requests in 2017–2018.

IX. Format of information released

Of requests that were fully or partially disclosed, 88% were sent out in paper format and 12% were released electronically.

PHAC's imaging software allows the Agency to respond to privacy requests using Portable Document Format (PDF). It is anticipated that the use of electronic formats for the release of information will continue to grow in future years.

X. Corrections and notations

There were no requests for the correction or the notation of personal information during the reporting period.

XI. Costs

PHAC spent a total of $512,002 responding to requests related to the Act; salaries accounted for $427,671, and administration costs accounted for $84,331. Most of the administration costs ($68,422) were for retaining temporary help services to process complex requests.

Training and awareness

Training, Orientation and Awareness for PHAC Employees

PHAC continues to offer privacy training through 'Privacy 101' sessions. General Privacy awareness training was provided to 48 employees during the year. These sessions provide participants with a high level understanding of the Privacy Act and its requirements relating to the processing of requests for information under the Privacy Act, the "need to know" principle, and general obligations regarding the collection, use, retention, disclosure and retention of personal information.

Several new training sessions were offered during this fiscal year, including a session on authorized communications and the privacy impact assessment, along with a session on privacy breaches designed to facilitate the management and prevention of privacy breaches. A total of 58 individuals took part in these training sessions. In addition, an online learning tool called Introduction to Privacy continued to be used in 2017–2018. Total online participation for the year was 23 employees.

Overall, 81 PHAC employees received privacy training in 2017–2018.

PHAC continues to increase awareness among employees of their responsibilities under the Privacy Act through targeted information sessions such as promoting Privacy Awareness Week in October by sending communications and general awareness messages through internal communication channels. Tweets on Privacy Week activities were shared approximately 8,000 times. The Privacy Management Division continues to use its Twitter account, which had 245 followers at the end of the fiscal year.

Recent privacy initiatives

In March 2018, PMD and the ATIP Division participated in the orientation session on the integration of new employees into Health Canada and PHAC. The session introduced employees to the key services they may need in the performance of their work. PMD and the ATIP Division gave an overview on what constitutes personal information, why the employees must manage it appropriately, the importance of doing a detailed search within a reasonable time period and the mechanisms involved when a request is made. The session had 36 participants.

PHAC continues to work to increase the capacity and expertise in this domain.

New and/or revised institution-specific privacy-related policies, guidelines and procedures

I. Privacy Management Division

The Division again gave an introductory course on the key requirements for the collection, use, retention, disclosure and disposal of personal information, as well as specific modules on privacy oversight, privacy breach management and privacy impact assessments (PIA). The training was provided to 2,411 participants government-wide.

II. Other initiatives

Governance and outreach

There is an ongoing focus on engagement through meetings with employees across the Department, central agencies and other government departments. For example, in 2017-2018, three (3) meetings of the Health Partnership Privacy Committee (HPPC) were held to promote privacy issues. As a director-level forum with representation from all areas of PHAC, the HPPC generates discussion and approval of privacy guidance, practices and tools, collaborates in ensuring that privacy compliance requirements are met, and makes recommendations to senior management.

Health Information Privacy Group

PHAC, through PMD, continues to participate as a member of the Canada Health Infoway's Federal-Provincial Territorial Health Information Privacy Working Group focused on privacy issues related to the development digital health services in Canada. In 2017-2018, PHAC participated in 2 in person meetings as well as one conference call.

Key issues raised as a result of privacy complaints and/or investigations

I. Complaints to the Privacy Commissioner of Canada

Two complaints were received from the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) in 2017–2018.

II. Types of complaints and their disposition completed

Two complaints were received by the Public Health Agency under Section 31 concerning the processing of requests under the Privacy Act. Two notices, based on Section 33 of the Act, were sent to the Agency by the OPC. These notices allow the Agency to present official findings with respect to investigations underway. Finally, two letters of findings (Section 35) related to complaints were sent by the OPC.

If a complaint is received and is investigated by the OPC, PHAC will examine the findings and, where appropriate, incorporate the lessons learned into operational processes.

III. Applications/appeals submitted to the Federal Court/Federal Court of Appeal

There were no applications or appeals submitted to the Federal Court or to the Federal Court of Appeal during fiscal year 2017–2018.

IV. Agency responses to recommendations raised by other agents of Parliament

There were no recommendations raised by other Agents of Parliament during fiscal year 2017–2018.

V. Privacy audits

There was one privacy audit that was concluded during fiscal year 2017–2018 for PHAC.
