The deadline to submit your annual breach statistics to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario is fast approaching!

The Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario’s (IPC) statistics submission website is open.

Health information custodians under the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) are required to submit annual statistics to the IPC, as described below.

The deadline to submit your annual statistical report of health information privacy breaches is Friday, March 1, 2024.

Submitting your statistical report

Breach statistics (PHIPA)

All health information custodians who have experienced a breach during the year must submit a report of health information privacy breaches, as set out in section 6.4 of O. Reg. 329/04 under PHIPA. However, custodians in private practice who have not experienced a breach during 2023 do not need to submit a report.

Please note that you must report all breaches, whether or not you were required to notify the IPC at the time they occurred.

How to file your statistical report

You must file your statistical reports online. We do not accept statistical reports by fax, mail, or email.
