(Western Ontario) NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION TO STATISTICS CANADA Statistics Canada is the national statistics agency. As such, it carries out hundreds of surveys each year on a wide range of matters, including education. It is essential for them to be able to follow students across time and institutions to understand, for example, the factors affecting enrolment demand at postsecondary institutions. The increased emphasis on accountability for public investment means it is also important to understand the “outcomes.” To carry out such studies, Statistics Canada requests from all post-secondary institutions data on students and graduates. Institutions collect and provide to Statistics Canada student identification information (student’s name, ID number, address and telephone number), demographic characteristics, enrolment information, previous education, and labour force activity. The Federal Statistics Act provides the legal authority for Statistics Canada to access personal information held by education institutions. The information collected may be used strictly for statistical purposes, and the confidentiality provisions of the Statistics Act prevent the information from being released in any way that would identify a student. Students who do not wish to have their information used for this purpose may contact Statistics Canada and request that their identification and contact information be removed from the national database. For more information, visit the Statistics Canada website at www.statcan.ca or write to: Postsecondary Education, Centre for Education Statistics, 17th Floor, RH Coats Building, Tunney’s Pasture, Ottawa, ON K1A 0T6 ALGOMA UNIVERSITY www.algomau.ca
