The privacy and protection of all the information we gather is governed by Canadian law, specifically the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) legislation. This legislation contains specific provisions about the collection, storage and use of information collected and recognizes the right of individuals to have that information protected and disclosed to them.
The purpose of this website is to provide a forum for the exchange of information and views on the construction, by the Regional Municipality of York ("the Region of York"), of the project. We welcome comments by visitors and we seek their participation in an ongoing dialogue. We therefore ask, but do not require, visitors to provide information that will allow us to respond to them, to gauge public views, and to associate those views to areas the project may affect.
We treat this information with care. We will not share or otherwise provide any personal information to anyone not associated with the Region of York or its public consultation team. We will not post any personal information on this website unless we receive explicit authorization from that person to do so. We will use the information to produce summary information that cannot be used to identify specific individuals.
