About us

Protection of Personal Information

Personal information includes any factual or subjective information about an identifiable individual. It includes:

  • Individual's name and address
  • Information on gender and age
  • Personal insurance, financing or income protection files
  • ID numbers, including client number and social insurance number

Confidential personal information may not be given out to a third party without the consent of the person concerned. This consent must be freely given, enlightened and manifest. It must be given for specific purposes and for a limited time.

Within the limits imposed by the Access Act, personal information may be communicated or accessible without the consent of the person concerned when:

  • La Financière agricole confers a written mandate following an agreement to perform work or conduct a survey;
  • The persons, agencies or departments that request it have inquiry powers granted by the law.

File Inventory

The inventory of personal information files outlines the type of personal information La Financière agricole holds, uses or keeps in its files, the purposes for which it is used and the categories of persons having access to the file to perform their duties.

Records of Personal Information Communications

The records of the communication and use of personal information outline the personal information held by La Financière agricole and that was transmitted without the consent of the persons concerned, in accordance with the Act respecting Access to documents held by public bodies and the Protection of personal information. The two sets of records describe for whom the information is gathered, to whom it is communicated and for which purposes it is used other than those for which it was initially provided.
