Cape Breton University – Privacy Statement

Update concerning FOIPOP Access to Information Requests and COVID-19

Cape Breton University campus facilities are now closed with employees working remotely to support CBU operations. CBU is still processing Access to Information Requests, but processing timelines may be impacted at this time. Many employees of the University are currently working remotely and may not be able to search for all records responsive to a request (i.e. paper records that are held on campus). We will work with departments to make every effort to process your request in a timely manner and will communicate with you about any delays.

At this time, please send all requests by both email and mail to ensure that your request is promptly received. Please include your email address in your application to allow for communication while staff are working remotely.  

                Emails may be sent directly to CBU’s Privacy Officer, courtney_vienneau@cbu.ca

                Paper applications and application fees can be sent to:
