Data Privacy at ICES
Every time someone in Ontario makes use of the health system, new data is added to the overall picture of that system. Since 1992, much of this data has been entrusted to ICES. We use data to help the government evaluate and plan for the health system through analytics.
We also use your data for research purposes. We ensure that your data is protected at every point of its lifecycle through strong privacy and security safeguards.
