The Halifax & Region MFRC is committed to respecting the privacy rights of individuals by ensuring that their personal information is collected, used and disclosed in such a manner that a reasonable person would consider appropriate in the circumstances. We support and follow the principles and obligations of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
However, please note that Halifax & Region MFRC’s privacy policies do not apply to linked websites. You should consult the privacy disclosures on each third party site for further information.
In August 2000, the Director Military Family Services (DMFS) developed the Privacy Code for Military Family Services Program (the Code) to assist Military Family Resource Centres (MFRCs) in protecting the personal information of Canadian Forces (CF) members and their families that is provided to or collected by MFRCs located within Canada.
The Code establishes the standard under which MFRCs within Canada collect and use personal information about Canadian Forces (CF) members and their families. Use of personal information, including nominal roll information provided directly by the CF when a member is posted or deployed is necessary for the provision of mandated services to members and their families. Personal information is also collected from MFRC employees, volunteers and third parties who provide services such as child care and will be similarly protected.
The Privacy Code for Military Family Services Program is a tailored version of the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information – CAN/CSA-Q830-96. The CSA Code became a National Standard of Canada in 1996. The 10 principles contained within the CSA Code reflect universal fair information practices that combine individual privacy rights with strong obligations to protect personal information collected and used by organizations.
