Freedom of Information

Seneca complies with the requirements of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA), and affirms the importance of conducting its operations in a transparent manner and, as far as possible, in ways that are open to public scrutiny.

In summary, FIPPA has two purposes:
1. Access: to provide the public with a right of access to information in the custody or under the control of institutions.
2. Privacy: to protect the privacy of individual's personal information held by institutions and to provide a right of access by individuals to their own personal information.

The information refers to records within Seneca's custody or control and can include records in all formats and media – records containing personal information relating to individual faculty, staff and students, as well as records relating to Seneca's business operations and administration of academic programs, services and areas.
