Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act
On January 1st
, 2004 new legislation came
into effect in the form of the Personal Information Protection and

This legislation regulates the collection, use and
disclosure of personal information by organizations in the course of

services and to keep you informed and up-to-date on the activities of
the Manitoba Prostate Cancer Support Group, including programs,
services, special events, funding needs, opportunities to volunteer or
