Government of Canada Privacy Notice

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) manages the network of Embassy and High Commission Web sites on behalf of the Government of Canada.   DFAIT is committed to respecting the personal privacy of individuals who visit our Web sites. This page summarizes the privacy policy and practices of Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Web sites.

  • The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade does not automatically gather any personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, e-mail or street address during your visit to its Web sites. This information is only obtained if you supply it voluntarily, usually through contacting us via e-mail, or registering in a secure portion of the site.
  • All personal information you do provide is protected under the federal Privacy Act. This means that, at the point of collection, you will be informed that your personal information is being collected, the purpose for which it is being collected and that you have a right of access to the information.
  • The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade uses software that receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of computers that have connected with their Web sites. In such instances, DFAIT makes no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting DFAIT sites.
  • The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade uses “persistent cookies" to track how visitors use the Web sites of individual institutions.  (Note: Cookies are files that a Web site can place on your hard drive to monitor use of that site.)
  • Visitor information is not disclosed to anyone except DFAIT personnel who need the information, e.g., to respond to a request. The information you give us will be shared with another government department ONLY if your inquiry relates to that department. We do not use the information to create individual profiles, nor do we disclose this information to anyone outside the federal government.

Questions or comments regarding this policy, or the administration of the Privacy Act in Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade may be directed to by accessing the Access to information Website of the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade or by calling (613) 992-1425.
