Compliance with FIPPA in BC

  • Updated

What is FIPPA?

The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) sets out the access and privacy rights of individuals as they relate to the public sector.

Does FIPPA Apply to You?

FIPPA is law for public bodies in British Columbia, such as hospitals, public universities and provincial ministries.

FIPPA will not apply to most private clinics and practitioners, but if you are uncertain if FIPPA applies to you, just ask your support rep.


Public Bodies Using Juvonno

Juvonno uses non-Canadian based tools for email and text reminder and verification. 

Public bodies are permitted under FIPPA to store personal information outside Canada if you obtain people’s consent. You will be required to ask all of your patients to sign a consent form to receive email and text reminders from you (via Juvonno and Juvonno’s trusted partners, Mandrill, Twilio and SignalWire). You can build these consents into your existing messaging and intake forms.
