Owl Practice is Proud to be Canadian

(103) Views

With Canada Day fast approaching, we are reflecting on what makes us proud to be Canadian.

Canadian Partner

Did you know that Owl Practice was started in a Toronto psychologist’s office? Since day one, we have worked in tandem with Canadian mental health professionals to help them manage their practices more efficiently.

We understand the unique needs of the mental health community in Canada, and are here to partner with our users to support them. Not only does Owl help simplify your practice administration, it also helps manage your client information more securely and compliantly according to Canadian privacy laws.

Canadian Users

Thousands of Canadian practitioners trust Owl every day with their practice administration. Our users stretch from coast to coast, and come from many different backgrounds. Here are just some of the types of practitioners that use Owl:

  • Psychotherapists
  • Psychologists
  • Social Workers
  • Clinical Counsellors
  • Dieticians
  • Speech and Language Pathologists
  • Therapists
  • Art Therapists
  • Family and Couples Specialists
  • Massage Therapists

  • And more!

Owl is flexible enough to accommodate the differing administrative needs of all these types of practitioners! Contact us to discuss how Owl can work for your unique practice.

Canadian Privacy

Privacy laws in Canada are some of the strongest in the world. A federal privacy law called PIPEDA (Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act) states that once an organization has your data, they are fully responsible for its protection. If that data leaves the country, stored on a U.S. server for example, that organization must inform their customers.

Owl Practice data centres are located exclusively in Canada so your practice data is squarely within the borders of Canada. Our servers are located in Toronto and Montreal so you can be assured your client’s practice data is securely stored in Canada. Importantly, we own these servers, which offers you an added layer of protection and peace of mind.

We take many other steps to secure and protect your data. Read more here!

Owl is also fully PHIPA and College compliant! Owl complies with Personal Health Information regulation (PHI) in every way possible. Regulations like PHIPA (in Ontario) are a set of rules that are laid out to help secure the privacy of patient personal health records. Each province has its own set of regulation around personal health records, but they all contain very similar requirements from an electronic record management perspective.

Canadian Team

Every member of the Owl team is located in Canada. The Owl team reaches from British Columbia to Ontario, and is bonded by their interest in supporting and empowering Canadian mental health professionals.
