The Canadian Partnership for Women and Children’s Health (CanWaCH) is committed to the protection and management of any personal identifiable information that you share with us. This Privacy Policy outlines the care and respect with which we treat your personal identifiable information.

We define “personal identifiable information” as information that may be used to identify an individual. This includes first name, last name, physical address, email address, and any other contact information. All personal identifiable information is kept confidential from the general public, unless it has been provided for publishing, such as, member organization contact information.

You may visit the CanWaCH website without identifying yourself or providing any personal information about yourself. Contact information for our Member organizations is published in the “Our Members” section of our website and is accessible to the public. If you join as a Member and complete the CanWaCH Membership form and have provided us with contact information about your organization, then you are giving consent to allow us to publish information about your organization including contact information. You may change the information that is published on the CanWaCH website at any time by notifying CanWaCH via email. Furthermore, by joining CanWaCH as a member, you are giving consent to allow us to contact you regarding your membership.


We use cookies to record session information and to track a user’s path through our website. This enables us to respond to problems with our site and to better understand usage for site improvements.

Third Parties

We do not sell or exchange personally identifiable information with any third parties.

Social Media

If you voluntarily submit or post any information, photographs or other content to any CanWaCH Twitter pages, Facebook pages or other social networking pages/sites, certain elements of your personal information may be automatically included in the posting, including your user name and email address, and this information may be collected and used by others. CanWaCH has no control over and is not liable for the collection, use or disclosure of any posted user content by users of such social media networking pages. Any personal information posted, used or disclosed via such sites is not subject to this Policy.

Links to third-party websites from the CanWaCH website are provided for the convenience of our users. CanWaCH has no control over, and therefore has no responsibility or liability for, the manner in which the organizations that operate such linked websites may collect, use, disclose or otherwise treat your personal information. The inclusion of any link does not imply CanWaCH’s endorsement of any other organization, its websites, or its products and/or services.

Access to and correction of personal information

Individuals have the right to access and correct inaccuracies in the personal information CanWaCH has about them in our records. To do so, they should contact CanWaCH. To protect individual privacy, CanWaCH will take reasonable steps to help verify the individual’s identity before granting access or making corrections to personal information.

As soon as CanWaCH becomes aware of a possible infringement of our Privacy Policy, we will take immediate action to contain, investigate and remediate the situation and communicate with affected parties, as required by law and our breach management practice.
