Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 30, 2021

Next Generation Manufacturing Canada (hereinafter “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”) is committed to protecting your personal information. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we treat the information we collect when you use the “Careers of the Future” website (the “Site”). In this Privacy Policy, we describe the type of information we collect, why we collect it and what we do with it.


In order for you to use the Site, the collection of certain personal information is necessary. IN PARTICULAR, PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FOLLOWING:


Our policies and practices have been designed to comply with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (Canada). You are only allowed to access the Site from within Canada and only if you are a Canadian legal resident. Use of the Site from outside of Canada, or by a person who is not a Canadian legal resident, is strictly prohibited.


When we use the term “personal information”, we are referring to information that can be used to identify a specific individual and that is recorded in any form. Personal information includes such things as your legal name, date of birth, age or address, but does not include, for example, data that has been aggregated so that the identity of an individual cannot be determined.

We are responsible only for the personal information under our control. Third party services (i) that assist us in providing the Site; (ii) that you link to through your use of the Site; (iii) that may collect information about you themselves; or (iv) that we may share your information with, in accordance with this Privacy Policy are governed by the respective privacy policies of those third parties.

If you would like to know what information is held in our records or wish to have any of the information updated or modified, please contact us at the address set forth in Section 10 below. We will not disclose your personal information to any third party without your consent, except as detailed in this Privacy Policy.

We may collect the following information from you when you use the Site:

We may also use browser data such as cookies (alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser, to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide certain features), flash cookies (also known as “Flash Local Shared Objects”), or similar data on certain parts of our website for fraud prevention and other purposes. During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page.

If you are accessing the Site from a web browser, the “help” portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.


In this section, we will identify the purpose for which your personal information is collected and will be used or disclosed. Generally, using the information we collect, we are able to deliver the Site to you. If that purpose is not listed below, we will do this before or at the time the information is actually being collected. You will be deemed to consent to our use of your personal information for the purpose of:

Due to the global nature of the Internet, you may be transferring your personal information to countries outside of Canada, whose legal systems do not offer the same protection for your data as the laws of Canada.


In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, we, or our service providers, may use a variety of technologies that collect non-personal, aggregated information about your use of the Site. Usage information may include the browser you are using, the URL that referred you to the Site, all of the areas within the Site that you visit and the time of day, among other information. This information is not personal information and will only be used to find out how you use the Site. The collection of this information allows us to, among other things, create new features, prepare for traffic load demands and efficiently distribute any email communications.


Except with your consent and as set out in this Privacy Policy, we will not sell, license, trade or disclose your personal information to or with others. You are deemed to consent to disclosure of your personal information for the purposes set out below.


We work hard to ensure that any personal information in our possession is as accurate, current and complete as necessary for the purposes for which we use that information. If we become aware that personal information is inaccurate, incomplete or out of date, we will revise the personal information.

We keep your personal information only as long as it is required for the reasons it was collected. The length of time we retain information varies, depending on the purpose for which it was collected and the nature of the information. This period may extend beyond the end of your relationship with us, but it will be only for so long as it is necessary for us to have sufficient information to respond to any issues that may arise at a later date.


We take security of data very seriously. We work hard to protect the information we collect from you from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. These steps take into account the sensitivity of the information we collect, process and store, and the current state of technology. Given the nature of communications and information processing technology, we cannot guarantee that the information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others.


Laws, regulations and industry standards evolve, or we may make changes to our business or to how we collect, process and store, information, which may necessitate changes to this Privacy Policy. If we wake changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on the Site. By continuing to use the Site, you will be deemed to have accepted any changes we make to the Privacy Policy, so we encourage you regularly review this Privacy Policy for any such changes. We will never make changes to this Privacy Policy or how we collect, process and store information that is contrary to applicable law. We are committed to protecting your information and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of information we have collected in the past without the consent of affected users. If you disagree with any changes to this Privacy Policy, you should stop using the Site.


Please also feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or our practices, or if you are seeking to exercise any of your rights relating to your personal information. If you would like more information about our policies, or you would like to see exactly what personal information we have about you in our records, or you wish to register a complaint, please contact:
