Information and Privacy Archivist at Simon Fraser University

Simon Fraser University Archives and Records Management Department invites applications for an Information and Privacy Archivist. Reporting to the University Archivist and Coordinator of Information and Privacy and based at the Burnaby campus, this full-time continuing position will assist in coordinating and facilitating access and privacy activities, which enable university departments, staff, and faculty to fulfill their legal obligations under British Columbia’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).

Working in tandem with an incumbent Information and Privacy Archivist, the successful candidate will process access to information requests; respond to requests for review and privacy complaints made to the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner; design and deliver access and privacy advisory services, education, and training; and undertake information management policy analysis and development.

The successful candidate will have a particular interest in the processing of access to information requests, but s/he will work as a collaborative member of a team of information management professionals and will be expected to participate in the overall operations of the Archives and Records Management Department, including the delivery of archives and records management services.

SFU Archives and Records Management is responsible for the administration of three corporate programs, including archives, records management, and freedom of information and protection of privacy. These different, but integrated program areas are tied together by the concept of the record as a vital institutional asset that adds value to the university when managed effectively, but exposes the university to increased costs, risks, and liabilities when managed poorly.

Applicants are invited to visit the Archives and Records Management Department website for more information about the department and its programs.
