Hiring program for ex-military staff makes proper use of information
An individual complained to us that the Public Service Commission of Canada had improperly collected and disclosed personal information about his release from the Canadian Forces for medical reasons.
The information was collected for use in a program that gives former military personnel priority consideration for vacant positions in the federal public service.
Our investigation determined that all aspects of the process had conformed fully with the Privacy Act. Indeed, we found that the complainant had consented in writing to the collection and disclosure of his medical release record from the military for the priority hiring program.
Accordingly, we dismissed the complaint as not well founded.
