Privacy Breach in Children's disABILITY Services

 

In August 2020, Manitoba Families disclosed a privacy breach that affected children who are clients of Children’s disABILITY Services (CDS).  The province took steps to address the breach quickly, which included contacting agencies and organizations that had received client information in error, as well as the families of children who were affected.   After calling parents and caregivers to apologize for the error, Manitoba Families followed up by sending a letter with more information.  We also developed Frequently Asked Questions to address some of the additional questions and concerns we’ve heard:

We will continue to update information as it becomes available.

Parents and caregivers can contact 204-945-8900 or ADS@gov.mb.ca if they have questions or need more information.
