Our Commitment to Respecting and Protecting Your Privacy
Canada’s NDP is committed to respecting and protecting your privacy, including your personal information. Our policy is in strict compliance with Canadian privacy principles, as well as our obligations under the Canada Elections Act. We are committed to ensuring the confidentiality and security of your personal information.
Collecting Personal Information
“Personal information” is information about an identifiable individual. It includes information such as your name, addresses, email address, telephone number, financial and demographic information.
Elections Canada provides all registered political parties with the List of Electors, which includes names and addresses. We also collect information from publicly available data sources.
We collect the personal information that you choose to provide to us when you become a donor, a member, when you voluntarily subscribe to our communications, when you register for an event or sign a petition either in person or online, when you complete any of the forms on NDP.ca and through voter contact activities, such as door-to-door canvassing and phone calls.
If you submit your email address and/or personal information through NDP.ca, you consent to being added to our email and/or contact list and to receive future communications from us.
Using Personal Information
We use your personal information to communicate with you about the NDP, to provide you with news and information about the NDP and our activities, and to contact you about your past and future donations and membership.
As we are a federal party, we may share your information internally within our national organization, including with NDP riding associations and provincial sections.
We use your financial information to process your donations. We are also required by the Canada Elections Act to provide Elections Canada with information related to the donations you make to us.
Protecting Your Personal Information
We may engage third parties to provide us with services from time-to-time, such as hosting servers and websites, processing online donations, or providing technical or communications services. When information is shared with third parties for these purposes, we ensure that your personal information is rigorously protected by including privacy safeguards in all our contracts, including stringent confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions.
Under no circumstances does the NDP sell your personal information to any third parties.
In the event of a privacy breach, the NDP is committed to documenting the circumstances that led to the breach, the personal identifying information that might have been compromised and immediately and proactively informing affected individuals.
In an effort to ensure that your privacy is protected and that the NDP is accountable to you, the party has designated a privacy officer, who is responsible for ensuring that your privacy and this policy is being respected. The privacy officer is also accountable for ensuring that any recipients of your personal information safeguard the security and integrity of your information.
When visiting NDP.ca, your privacy is respected and protected.

Other sites to which we provide links may be governed by different policies. The NDP does not assume responsibility for the information practices of these other sites, and we strongly encourage all our visitors to review the privacy policies and statements of all externally-linked sites.
