Directory of Personal Information Banks


Each Alberta government department is required to have a directory of personal information banks (PIBs) and make it available to the public. A personal information bank lists the type of personal information held by a public body.

The public can view a personal information bank to get information about:

  • The title or name of the information bank

  • The location of the information bank

  • What kind of personal information is contained in the information bank

  • What categories of individuals the information pertains to

  • Why the information was collected and how it is used or disclosed

  • The legal authority for the collection of the information

A personal information bank does not provide direct access to an individual’s records. For further information on how to obtain personal records, contact:
