Privacy Policy for Accommodations Requests

All accommodation requests are confidential and will be treated as such in compliance with the Optometry Examining Board of Canada (“OEBC”) privacy policy. The OEBC will only release personal and/or personal health information to authorized persons or organizations, on a confidential, need-to-know basis, for the purposes of reviewing and making decisions regarding accommodations requests. This may include OEBC staff as well as contracted external disability experts.  Accommodations-related documentation will not be re-released to any third party (except contracted experts) without the candidate’s express written consent.  Accommodations requests and supporting documentation are considered personal health information, and as such, are not kept with other academically-related information.
