You are invited to attend a workshop for those affected by the Nova
Scotia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act in school
boards, universities, district health authorities (including hospitals),
childrens' aid societies, and municipalities. The sessions are designed
to provide practical tips and informative sessions on the new federal
privacy legislation and trends in recent court decisions. The day will
help you understand the rights and obligations of this complex
legislation, and will provide a useful update on issues and trends.
Libraries often face decisions around the issues of privacy and access
to information, and will find this workshop relevant and useful.
This workshop is being offered in Halifax, Port Hawkesbury and
Wolfville. There are spaces left in the Port Hawkesbury and Wolfville
locations on October 21 and November 9, respectively.
