PRIVACY NOTICE – PLEASE BE ADVISED

On November 17, 2018 at approximately 12:30 pm  in the Napanee office location ( 70 Dundas Street East) of Addiction & Mental Health Services – KFLA (AMHS-KFLA) experienced a break in in which several items were stolen, including computer equipment. The stolen devices were password protected, and many were also equipped with encryption software.

Napanee OPP is currently investigating the break and entry incident.

As we do not know if any confidential information was accessed, we are unable to provide notification directly to individuals who may be impacted.

We apologize for any inconvenience or harm this may have caused.  As such, we have notified the Office of the Information Privacy Commissioner of Ontario of this incident.
