Confidentiality and privacy


We recognize that in learning about potentially sensitive topics—such as substance use and mental health problems—people bring different experiences, perspectives, attitudes and values to their learning.

As part of our commitment to creating a safe and respectful learning environment, all discussion that takes place in this course must be kept confidential by registered participants, facilitators and administrators.

Please do not circulate or discuss the experiences and comments of your colleagues in the course with anyone not registered in the course. This will help maintain an environment where participants feel comfortable engaging with the materials and issues in the course.


We are committed to providing participants with an environment that respects their privacy. Sometimes, we request personal information from you to enhance your access to information online. Information you share is kept secure.

We only use personal information for the express purpose for which it was collected, unless you specifically agree to the use of your personal information for additional purposes. To prevent unauthorized access and to ensure proper use of your personal information, we follow electronic and managerial procedures to secure information provided online. We will not share your personal information with any third party.

As a participant who has provided personal information online, you can access your personal information to correct, update or delete it from our records. We offer an email address for such purposes at the points of collection of personal information online.

This course may contain links to other websites. Upon entering other sites, you become subject to their privacy and security policies.
