What are Personal Information Banks?
FOIP requires NAIT to make available for inspection and copying by the public a directory that lists the Institutes Personal Information Banks (PIB).
A PIB must contain personal information, take the form of a collection and be retrievable by the name or an identifying number, symbol or other particular assigned to an individual.
NAIT has documented all of its PIBs. The directory of PIBs has been developed and is in draft form. Once it is finalized, it will be linked to this page.
