To determine the appropriate type of consent, we consider the sensitivity of the personal information in question, the purposes for which it is collected and the reasonable expectations of an individual in a similar situation.

If we want to use personal information for a new purpose, we will describe the intended use and ask for consent again.

It is not always possible, particularly in the context of a request from the Province/State, to obtain the consent of the person to collect, use, or communicate their personal information.
