Video Surveillance and Notification of Collection of Personal Information under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act

Video surveillance, when utilized with other security measures, is an effective means of ensuring the security and safety of City facilities, the individuals who use them, and the assets housed within them. Video surveillance cameras are found in various locations including the Civic Centre, the Living Arts Centre, Transit Terminals and a number of parks and recreation centres. Under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, the recorded image of an individual is considered personal information.

The personal information collected by the use of the City's video surveillance cameras is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, Section 11 and the City's Corporate Policy on Video Surveillance. The information is used for the purpose of promoting public safety, aiding the risk management insurance program and reducing crime at City facilities.
