The current “Health Help Topics” pages are an updated version of the 2012 “Health Information Privacy in British Columbia” website, developed by Sara Levine for BC FIPA.
These pages were last updated and reviewed in August of 2022.
The information on these pages only contains general information and guidance; none of the information constitutes legal advice. If you have a specific issue that you believe is a legal problem, the best practice is to consult a lawyer.
