PIPA – A privacy primer for housing co-ops

Terra Macdonald      23 Mar 2021      webinar      CHF BC event

Co-ops can’t avoid dealing with a lot of personal information about members. That’s just the nature of our business. Find out how to protect your members’ right to privacy as required by the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) without compromising necessary co-op business practices.

6 to 8 p.m.

What type of information is considered personal? When should the board hold in camera meetings and who can read those minutes? Who has access to your personal information in the co-op? Is the board entitled to know which members are in arrears or on subsidy? What can you do if a director breaches confidentiality?

BC’s PIPA includes very specific rules about how information can and can’t be used and who should have access to it. Don’t let a privacy complaint be the first time you find out what PIPA has to say.

All webinars are $35/person or $200 for seven registrations from one co-op.

Non-member rate $50 per person.

Facilitator: Terra Macdonald
