PRIVACY NOTICE

The information provided in this online request form is being gathered by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in accordance with section 29.2 of the Financial Administration Act for the purpose of facilitating the receipt and delivery to participating institutions of requests submitted under Access to Information and Privacy (ATIP) legislation.

The complete list of institutions participating in this ATIP Request and Pay Online service can be viewed on the Contact-Us page. The information you will be providing on this online request form will be held temporarily on the servers hosted by IRCC. Once requests are re-routed to and received by the institution selected by the applicant, the information will be deleted from IRCC servers.

The information relating to online requests will then be retained by the institution responsible for processing the request, and will be kept for the period of time identified in standard Personal Information Bank PSU 901 (Access to Information and Privacy). It may only be shared with other organizations in accordance with sub section 8(2) of the Privacy Act.

The personal information you provide on this form will only be made available to employees who require it in order to process and respond to your request. IRCC and the institutions participating in this online request will not use your information for any other purpose than that for which it was collected. Under the Privacy Act, you have the right to request access to your personal information held by a government institution and to request corrections, should you believe the information you provided contains errors or omissions. If you wish to avail yourself of this right, you must contact the appropriate ATIP Coordinator.

Payment information will be redirected to a secure and trusted third party web site (Moneris Solutions) where your payment will be processed. Your name, credit card number, expiry date and security code (CVV2) will be collected in order to process your payment. Once your online application is transmitted to the designated institution, a notification of payment will be conveyed, as a confirmation that application fees were paid to the Receiver General of Canada.

To ensure compliance with the Directive on the Social Insurance Number (SIN), individuals are asked not to provide their SIN during the online application process, unless they are requesting personal information from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) or Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) - including Service Canada, as these departments are authorized to use the SIN.

If you have concerns about the confidentiality of the transmission of information (using this online tool) you may send your paper application or any necessary supporting documents directly to the appropriate government institution.
