Opportunities New Brunswick (ONB) is subject to and complies with the Right to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (RTIPPA). ONB collects, uses, discloses, and disposes of personal information (PI) in a manner that is accurate, confidential, secure, and private.
Right to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (RTIPPA)
RTIPPA sets out the rules that public bodies must follow when collecting, using, and disclosing PI. For more information on RTIPPA, please review the Right to Information and Protection of Privacy section of the GNB website.
OUR INFORMATION PRACTICES
ONB has legal authority to collect PI as per RTIPPA, Section 37 (1), (2), and the ONB Act, Section 5 (d).
For the provision of our programs or services, ONB collects only necessary information, as permitted by law, including:
- Personal information
- Financial information
- Employment and/or education history
Use and Disclosure
ONB uses or discloses your PI only for the purpose for which it was collected, for a use consistent with that purpose, or for the provision of a common or integrated service, program, or activity.
ONB may disclose PI to:
- A third party to perform certain functions on ONB’s behalf, or;
- A partner to support the provision of a common or integrated service, program, or activity.
When a third party or partner participates in the collection, use, disclosure, or other processing of PI, ONB enters into a written Agreement or Contract with the third party, or establishes a formal partnership with that public body, organization, or non-ONB personnel.
In both circumstances, ONB requires that third party or partner to commit to protecting PI in accordance with ONB’s privacy policies as well as privacy legislation.
Safeguarding personal information
ONB has implemented appropriate technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect PI against theft, loss, unauthorized access, use, copying, disclosure, or modification. Safeguards may vary depending on the sensitivity of the PI and method of storage.
When you visit ONB’s website, some non-personal, non-identifiable information is collected, such as basic demographic data and browsing patterns.

Access and Correction
You have the right to request from ONB any record containing your PI and to request correction if a record is inaccurate or incomplete.
