June 28, 2016

Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner, Ronald J. Kruzeniski, Q.C. has submitted his office’s 2015-2016 Annual Report to the Legislative Assembly. Kruzeniski stated:

This is my second Annual Report filed as the Information and Privacy Commissioner and I hope it reflects the path I have taken over the last two years and intend to pursue over the next three years.

And he further stated:

It is still necessary to update the existing legislation and in that process necessary to strike a balance between access to personal health information and protection of personal health information.

In continuing the work to update legislation and strike the balance, I have proposed amendments to The Health Information Protection Act (HIPA), a summary of which are contained in the Annual Report. I hope to work with the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Justice and stakeholders in the health sector to bring these proposals to the Legislative Assembly.

I am most pleased that Bills 30 and 31 have been tabled in the Legislative Assembly which contains amendments to The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and The Local Authority Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. These Bills further the efforts to update access and privacy legislation in Saskatchewan.
