Privacy Protection

Protecting your personal information and privacy is very important to the City of Kawartha Lakes.

The City collects your personal information for many activities, services, and programs. Under MFIPPA, we cannot collect your personal information unless we are legally authorized to do so. With few exceptions, personal information may be collected directly from you and we must give you advance notice in writing of:

  • our authority to collect your information
  • why it's being collected and how it's going to be used
  • who to contact if you have questions about the collection of your personal information

The City cannot use your personal information except as permitted under MFIPPA. Without your permission, personal information can only be used for the purpose for which it was collected or a consistent purpose.

The City's Official Access, Information and Privacy Policy, and other policies relating to privacy can be found on our Council Policies page, and are reviewed each term of Council, or as directed by City Council.

Please contact the Office of the City Clerk (705-324-9411 ext. 1322 or 1295) if you have any questions or concerns about access to municipal records and the protection of your privacy.
