Civic Accelerator Roads Challenge: Notice of Collection regarding personal information

City of Guelph is working with IRIS R&D to track small road defects that could identify preventative maintenance opportunities and potentially extend the lifecycle of our roads.

Pilot objectives

The City of Guelph is initiating a pilot with IRIS R&D to identify road allowing the City to do preventative maintenance which will potentially extend the lifecycle of the road.

The City will be installing dashboard cameras (dashcams) on some of its road condition assessment vehicles. The sole intent is to collect video data that can be used to identify new road defects (e.g. cracks). The data captured may include personal information, such as license plates. Access to data will be strictly limited to essential staff who will analyze and then delete the data within seven days. Personal information, as defined by Section 2 of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA), is collected under the authority of the Municipal Act, 2001, and in accordance with the provisions of MFIPPA.

Data collection will begin on November 25 and will end by December 20. The pilot will be completed by no later than February 28, 2020.
