Privacy breach reported by Manitoba Health

Charles Lefebvre reports:

Manitoba Health says a privacy breach that happened earlier this week following a break-in at a facility compromised some people’s personal health information.

According to a statement from the province, the break-in took place at the Manitoba Health Appeal Board office on Portage Avenue on Nov. 29, with the province noting confidential information was stored in the office.

The province said it is believed personal health information and other private information of some clients were breached, adding in a very small number of instances, the information could include social insurance numbers.
