Video surveillance

Video surveillance helps us maintain safe and secure communities.

Capital Region Housing uses video surveillance or CCTV systems as part of its approach to creating secure environments for tenants and staff. We take steps to ensure we balance tenants’ right to privacy and the need to ensure the safety and security of its communities.

As part of our commitment to the safety and security of our buildings, Capital Region Housing may place video surveillance equipment in public and common areas of owned and/or managed buildings, such as entrances, stairwells, and exterior grounds.

Capital Region Housing will not place video surveillance equipment anywhere that tenants, staff, and the public should reasonably expect privacy, such as but not limited to: directly in front of a tenant’s door, or in washrooms and change rooms.

Capital Region Housing will ensure that access to video surveillance systems is controlled. Recorded footage is considered a record of personal information. An individual who is the subject of the information has a right to access their personal information under section 6 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. For more information, contact our FOIP Coordinator at 780-420-6161.
