Livestock Drought Assistance Program

Introduction

The objective of the Livestock Drought Assistance Program (LDAP) is to provide financial assistance to Canadian producers of livestock in designated drought affected regions of the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario, by providing financial assistance to owners of specified livestock. After consultation with provincial governments on the scope and severity of the drought, it was determined that LDAP would only be offered in British Columbia. The LDAP was developed to assist eligible producers in managing the economic effects and impacts of the 2006 drought by providing financial assistance, conditional on provincial contributions, to help with extraordinary costs incurred as a result of the drought, such as hauling feed and water for livestock, infrastructure costs for wells, pipelines, dugouts, and storage.

Objective

A privacy impact assessment (PIA) of the LDAP was conducted to determine if there were any privacy issues, and if so, to make recommendations for their resolution or mitigation.

Description

The scope of the PIA included the business process and basic data flows of personal information associated with the LDAP. Personal Information Bank (PIB) AAFC PPU 620 outlines the details regarding the personal information collected under the LDAP, including the purpose, use, retention and disposal standards.

Conclusion

As a result of the Privacy Impact Assessment, measures have been determined to mitigate any risks associated with the collection of personal information under the Livestock Drought Assistance Program.
