Updated: Guide on Compliance with Personal Health Information Protection Act.

November 19, 2021

Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal health information by midwives and other health information custodians practising within Ontario.

The College of Midwives of Ontario has updated our Guide on Compliance with Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) to further clarify the responsibilities of practice partners under the legislation.

Midwives are responsible for ensuring that they comply with the legislative requirements that apply to the personal health information of their clients.
