Privacy statement

This privacy statement explains the current information management practices on our website.

School boards, educators and administrators must follow the rules established under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) concerning the protection of the privacy of students and access to information concerning them. The A Guide to Privacy and Access to Information in Ontario Schools answers the most common questions about access to information and the protection of privacy in the school system.

Our commitment

The Conseil scolaire catholique de district des Grandes Rivières is committed to protecting your privacy while you browse our website. No personal information is requested on our website, unless you decide to contact us through an online form, which may then require the collection of personal information. If you would prefer not to use the Internet to transmit personal information to our Board, you can contact us or the school principal by phone, fax, mail or in person. (This range of options will not necessarily be available in all cases.)


We may only collect personal information the collection of which is permitted by law or necessary to provide a program or service. We collect personal information directly from you, unless another method of collection is permitted by law.


We may use your personal information only for the purpose for which it was originally collected, or for consistent use, unless any other use is specifically permitted by law.


We may only disclose personal information if we have the legal authority to do so, or if that is the reason the information was collected in the first place.
