Reminder to health information custodians: Submit your 2021 Health Privacy Breach Report by March 1, 2022

Dietitians who are health information custodians in Ontario are required to annually report statistics relating to health privacy breaches to the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC). The deadline to submit your 2021 health privacy breaches report is Tuesday, March 1, 2022.

By law, health information custodians that have experienced at least one health privacy breach during the 2021 reporting year — from January to December — are required to report breaches through the IPC’s online submission website. Learn more about this reporting requirement on the IPC website and read Privacy Breaches – Obligations for Dietitians.
