The landlord-tenant relationship can involve the collection, use and disclosure of significant amounts of personal information. Privacy issues can arise, for example, in relation to tenant concerns about over-collection and inappropriate use of personal information, issues related to surveillance cameras and disclosure of tenant information to third parties.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) is regularly approached by tenants looking for information and advice about their privacy rights in a landlord-tenant relationship. This page features answers to the most common questions we are asked by tenants or prospective tenants. We have also developed some tips for landlords on common privacy issues in the rental housing sector.

Are there any laws that set out the rules for how landlords handle tenants’ personal information?

Landlords are required to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act(PIPEDA), Canada’s federal private sector privacy law, or provincial legislation deemed to be substantially similar.
