Privacy Impact Assessment
Protecting privacy is more than just upholding the law, it also involves taking a proactive approach to safeguarding the public’s personal and personal health information.
Manitoba Ombudsman has developed a user-friendly privacy impact assessment (PIA) tool that ‘tells the story’ of a project from a privacy perspective. Simply, it encourages public bodies and/or trustees to think about privacy when evaluating an existing or proposed program/activity.
The full 12-page PIA tool includes the following sections:
- Introduction and Acknowledgments
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Before Getting Started
- Privacy Impact Assessment Tool (questionnaire)
The questionnaire portion of the tool is also available as a fillable pdf form for Adobe Acrobat Pro (Acrobat Pro 9.x or higher required) and Adobe Reader (Reader 9.x or higher required). Many of the text fields are dynamic -- they automatically resize to accommodate the amount of data you enter and can span across pages.
A Microsoft Word version (97-2003) of the questionnaire portion is also available for editing.
Fillable forms are located under "related files" at the top right of this page.
