Work Product Information

A Canadian term referring to information about an individual that is related to that individual’s position, functions and/or performance of his or her job. A term that is undefined by PIPEDA, the privacy commissioner has decided that work product may at times fall under the definition of personal information. Access to such information by the commissioner is addressed on a case-by-case basis. Not to be confused with the American legal term "work product," which refers to legal materials prepared in anticipation of litigation.
