a lot of the posts on here talk about hippa this and hippa that... what about in canada? i know that invasion of privacy is an intentional tort...but... is there a short, simple way of stating privacy policies in canada?
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?
