Hog Industry Loan Loss Reserve Program

Introduction

The Hog Industry Loan Loss Reserve Program (HILLRP) was announced by the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) in August 2009. HILLRP was established to assist viable hog operations with their short term liquidity pressures by having the Government of Canada share the risk with financial institutions (FIs) by consolidating short term debt into long term loans. It was designed to increase access to credit for eligible producers producing hogs in Canada who could provide a business plan which demonstrated that the business was or could be viable and had a reasonable prospect of repaying the loan.

Objective

As the HILLRP involves the collection and management of personal information, a Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) was conducted to determine if there were any privacy risks, and if so, to make recommendations for their resolution or mitigation.

Description

The scope of the PIA was restricted to the business process and basic data flows of personal information associated with the administration of the HILLRP. This includes AAFC's collection, use, retention, disclosure and disposal of personal information in the context of the Hog Industry Loan Loss Reserve Program.

The Personal Information Bank (PIB) PPU 632 outlines the details regarding the personal information collected under the HILLRP, including the purpose, use, retention and disposal standards.

Conclusion

As a result of the PIA, measures have been determined to mitigate risks associated with the collection of personal information including a review of privacy notices and retention schedules and the creation of a Personal Information Bank.
