You have the right to access and obtain copies of all your health and medical records.
Personal health information access and privacy is governed by provincial and territorial legislation in Canada. Each province or territory has its own law to govern this information, as well as its own privacy commissioner or ombudsperson. These laws set out your rights to access your information and your right to privacy.
Because health and medical record information is governed at the provincial level, the types of records and how far back they go varies depending on where you are in Canada. Many provinces and territories now have an online health portal that allows citizens to access some of their records.
My Health Information Co-op offers the first national service in Canada. It allows you to add information from any provincial, international, and non-government sources to build a complete health history.
