Definition of personal information
Personal data is information about an identifiable individual under the applicable Canadian privacy law (i. e. , federal, provincial and territorial law). This includes any information that may be used to distinguish, identify or contact a particular individual. Personal data may also include opinions, beliefs and facts relating to or concerning the person. Commercial contact information and certain publicly available information, such as names, addresses and telephone numbers published in telephone directories, will not be considered personal data. When an individual uses their personal contact information as professional contact information, we consider the contact information provided to be professional contact information.
