Elections BC understands that an individual’s trust and confidence in an organization depends to a significant degree on how it treats their personal information. At the same time, regulatory expectations for the management of privacy have increased – public bodies like Elections BC have the power to compel individuals to provide their personal information, and a legal and ethical obligation to responsibly manage it. Elections BC is committed to appropriately protecting the personal information entrusted to it.
Note: Personal information provided by Elections BC under the Election Act may only be used as authorized by section 275 of the Election Act and the Electoral Purposes for Access to and Use of Personal Information Regulation.
Elections BC thanks the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for its assistance in the development of these resources.
