Mission Statement
The Herb Society of Manitoba is dedicated to promoting knowledge, use and enjoyment of herbs through education, programs, research and sharing the experience of its members with the community.
The above policy has been adopted in order to adhere to new federal privacy legislation: PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act). On January 1, 2004 PIPEDA came into effect to protect the confidentiality of an individual's personal information. This important new legislation incorporates the principles that every element of personal information should only be used for purposes that are defined and explained in advance to the individual and that use or disclosure for any other purposes requires further knowledge and consent.
