Legal Guidance

If you have a question about privacy and security in your health centre, email us at [email protected] and we'll organize some time to speak with you. We will work with our privacy and security advisor to get you the legal guidance and practical advice you need.

Sharing Personal Health Information

We know First Nations health teams are often asked to share information with other programs, departments and organizations. Determining when and how to share PHI can be confusing, so we developed a document to help you.

Email us at [email protected] to learn more about sharing personal health information within the Circle of Care and receive a helpful chart that outlines specific examples with a First Nations context.

Online Courses

Developed in partnership with SE Health's First Nations, Inuit and Métis Program, the Privacy & Security Information Security course is a self-paced online course that is available for free. You can finish the modules all at once or over a couple of days to receive the Certificate of Completion.
