COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
The records for the Pension Plan include, for each Member, personal information such as date of birth, marital status, social insurance number, and the identity and dates of birth of spouse and beneficiaries. This information is collected for the purpose of managing pension entitlements. In some cases medical records and other employment related details are required.
All personal information that is stored electronically is protected by encryption, firewalls, anti-virus programs, and physical intrusion detectors, which are regularly upgraded. Hardcopy files are treated with similar security measures.
Registration to participate in the Pension Plan requires Member authorization to gather and apply personal information in specific ways. The Plan Member may revoke that authorization, subject to certain legal constraints. However, doing so precipitates the destruction of the Member's personal information and may, therefore, render ongoing participation impossible.
A complaint related to personal information, may be addressed to the Administrator's Privacy Officer at the following address. If further action is required, a Member may contact the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada or an applicable Provincial Commissioner.
