  1. Is it too easy for health authorities to access the Registry? Audits for security?

Health Authority staff must be pre-authorized by the Nidus Registrar before they are given a log-in to search for information and documents stored in the Personal Planning Registry. This includes agreeing to the Registry Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy and having their identity witnessed by a lawyer or notary public in good standing with their respective governing bodies. The staff must also be approved by a senior manager of the Health Authority—referred to as the Institutional Contact. The Registrar checks with the Institutional Contact regularly to ensure the Health Authority staff are still in good standing.

Health Authority staff can only access records for which the Account Holder (you) gives permission. The Account Holder can give or withdraw permission—it is your choice.

An audit trail (report) is kept for all Registry activity.


Please read our fact sheet to find out about other Registry security and privacy measures and what you can do to protect your personal information.
