Frequently Asked Questions

Why home address is suppressed on driver abstract?

To protect the personal privacy of the driver, Ministry of Transportation is not providing residential address information when responding to vehicle and driver information requests. Such practice exits since 1994 as residential address was determined to be the most sensitive item of personal information in Ministry's databases.

Ontario's Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act ensure that goverment organizations that hold your personal information protect your privacy in the collection, use, storage, dissemination, and disposal of that information.
