Law 25

Protection of Personal Information

As of September 22nd 2022, Law 25 concerning the protection of personal information will gradually come into effect over a period of 3 years. This law affects the standards of practice of health professionals, including psychologists.

As a psychologist and self-employed worker, I will now have the following responsibilities within my private clinic:

  • Apply Law 25 on the protection of personal information.

  • Respond to requests relating to personal information (e.g., access, correction).

  • Establish the rules of governance relating to personal information.

  • Keep records of the communication of personal information.

  • Notify the Commission d’accès à l’information of any breach in confidentiality involving personal information.

  • Keep a record of confidentiality breaches involving personal information.
