Designated privacy officers

A designated privacy officer (DPO) is a statutory officer created by the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPP). The head of a public body chooses the DPO. They respond to reports of suspected privacy breaches.

When to contact a designated privacy officer

You should contact a DPO if you:

  • have questions about the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information;
  • suspect your or someone else’s personal information was breached; or
  • have any general questions about privacy within a department, corporation or directorate.
