Statement from the Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning
Innovation and Advanced Learning
An equipment malfunction that led to the inadvertent distribution of some student information has been addressed. This weekend, a faulty mailing machine resulted in the improper folding of some forms sent to recipients of post-secondary grants and bursaries causing the social insurance number of the recipient to be visible through the envelope’s window. The folding machine is currently undergoing repair and staff are reviewing protocol to prevent future recurrence. Privacy is Government’s primary concern and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
