Data security is ePACT’s highest priority. The ePACT network uses industry best practice encryption and security standards to ensure the highest quality data protection for both the system and its users. ePACT is committed to ensuring 24/7 availability, and meeting the same security requirements as Canadian financial institutions. All data is hosted and backed-up within Canada, to ensure complete data protection in case of a large-scale disaster. No information is stored in the USA, nor does ePACT have any third party agreements.
Privacy standards for the ePACT network also align with other province-wide programs, ensuring adherence to government-level privacy standards, including meeting all FOIPPA requirements. For more information, visit our Privacy page.
