Video Surveillance on School Buses

Beginning September 2019,  school buses that transport HCDSB students to and from school will be equipped with interior-facing video recording cameras.  The cameras will be recording while school buses are in use, providing an additional measure to help enhance student safety, monitor disruptive behaviour and maintain order on the school bus.

Personal information recorded by these video cameras is collected under the authority of the Education Act and in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA). For more information, please read the HCDSB: Notification of the Routine Collection, Use & Disclosure of Student Personal Information.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Privacy Manager, Sandra Vieira, at
