    It has different names in different provinces, such a PHIA in Manitoba (Personal Health Information Act) and FOIPP (Freedom of Information and Personal Protection) in Alberta.

    I remember one of my teachers in Pre-Health saying that what ever law has "Act" in the name it means that it's on a national level.
    So I just googled "personal health information" and the e-laws site came up...
    "Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004"
    Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004, S.O. 2004, c. 3, Sched. A
    So I guess We can call it "PHI Act" of just PHIA?
    of course every province/territory has it's own regulations as well, but the Act has to be national, so I guess we can just call in PHIA for the sake of simplicity?
