Details

Access Conditions

Although the files are confidential and access is therefore restricted, the Department supports the rights of former residents to obtain information about themselves.

The Department is aware that former residents often want the records of their family member and/or other people. This information is often sensitive and personal in nature. To safeguard the rights of privacy, clients are unable to obtain information about other people, including other family members, without the authority of the person/people concerned. This protects the right to privacy of all individuals, as personal information on other people will be given out only with their permission.

Records

A definitive date range for these records cannot be confirmed. It is estimated that they relate approximately to the years 1950 to 2001
