PIPEDA, which is short for Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, is a Canadian law protecting the rights and privacy of consumers in Canada. The law specifies how private organizations are supposed to collect, use and distribute data from consumers.
The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) deals with the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information for commercial activity in Canada. Essentially, if your practice collects information from patients, it can only be used for the purpose that it was collected for. If you wish to use it for another purpose, you must obtain consent from the patient.
Provinces such as Alberta, British Columbia, and Quebec have their own privacy laws, similar to PIPEDA. These laws have been put in place to protect the privacy and personal information of consumers.
