What will happen to my confidential IAP/ADR records?

If you made a claim in the IAP or ADR, your records will stay confidential at the IAP Secretariat. To protect you confidentiality, your records will be automatically destroyed on September 19, 2027. If you want your records to remain confidential and then destroyed, you do not need to do anything. Do NOT sign the consent form.

What are my choices for my IAP/ADR records? You can:

Do nothing: your records will remain confidential and will then be destroyed on September 19. 2027

  • Get a copy for yourself to keep or share with others (link to contact us page)
  • Preserve them for history, public education and research at the NCTR (link to Consent Form)
  • Get a copy for yourself and preserve them for history, public education and research at the NCTR

If you decide to preserve your records at the NCTR, you have a choice of two ways to do that: restricted access or open access. In either case the NCTR will use and share your records for public education and research to promote reconciliation. The NCTR is also committed to the respectful and dignified use of your records and of doing no harm.

•Restricted access means the NCTR may use and share your records with others for purposes such as public education, but only if the NCTR removes your personal information. Personal information means information that identifies you or could be used to identify you. Your personal information will be made available to the NCTR and researchers, but only under strict confidentiality conditions. Your personal information will not be available to the public and will not be published.

•Open access means the NCTR may use your records and personal information, including your name, in the way it thinks is appropriate including by sharing with others. However, the NCTR will not disclose certain personal information, such as your address, phone number, band or disc number.

For both restricted or open access, all information that identifies other people will be removed before your records are transferred to the NCTR, to protect their privacy.
