Personal Health Information Collection by Baitul Mukarram Academy (BMA)


Our designated staff at Baitul Mukarram Academy (BMA) are committed to respecting and protecting the privacy of students. The following statement outlines the policies and procedures with respect to collecting, using and disclosing personal health information at BMA:

Personal health information will be collected with your knowledge and consent. The only exception to this is an urgent situation where there is a risk of harm.

Only information that is reasonably necessary to provide service will be collected. If information is collected for any other purpose, it will be done only with your knowledge and consent.

Personal health information is used for service-related purposes and may also be used for program evaluation, quality improvement, trainee education and risk/error management.

All of the staff members are trained to protect privacy and ensure the security of your personal health information

Staff members are allowed access to your personal health information only on a "need-to-know" basis.

The record may occasionally be accessed for external auditing purposes. However, the information will not be taken out of our office for this purpose

Information will not be disclosed to persons outside BMA without your knowledge and consent, with only a few exceptions. These exceptions include circumstances in which disclosure is justified by law and allowed by professional ethical standards (e.g., risk of serious bodily harm), or required by law (e.g., reporting a child in need of protection; reporting a health professional who has sexually abused a client; a court order to release information from a record).

When consenting to the release of information, you may opt to restrict the disclosure of all or any part of the personal health information. If however, in the opinion of the designated professional staff member, the information is reasonably necessary for another health provider to provide appropriate service, our professional staff member is required by law to inform the other provider that you have refused consent to provide some needed information.

External researchers will not be provided access to information that can be identified as being about our student/parents, unless they consent to such access.

Parents have the right to access any record of our student’s/their personal health information and to request copies of the information, with the following exception. If they are the custodial parent/guardian of a student who has been deemed competent and has consented to service on his/her own, they may not access the record without the student's consent.

If parents believe that there are inaccuracies in the personal health information, they may make a written request to correct their record. If we do not agree with the correction they request, they may file a notice of disagreement into the record.

These privacy policies and procedures have been developed in accordance with the law of Ontario, as well as with professional regulations and ethical standards.

Background Inspiration


“Where there is a will, there is a way”- natural history tells us how it works. About 14 years ago BMIS started with an enthusiastic group of people with limited resources but with a long-term vision; it is now a success story. Successful organization connects people to work together for building better community, and that’s why Muslims are building stronger community in the vicinity of BMIS. Now it is the time to think about how to guide and protect our children in the community where we live and grow, and it is the growing demand of our community.

Inception Of BMA- Turning Point


With respect to the above point of views, under the umbrella of BMIS, Baitul Mukarram Academy (BMA) began operation in September 2014 with the slogan / vision statement: “Our Future Is Our Children” in order to introduce a full time Islamic school with Ministry of Education curriculum. BMA is successful to get the approval from Ontario Ministry of Education. BMA successfully completed the first school year (2014-2015) fulfilling the curriculum expectations and provided students’ report card on the template of Ministry of Education (MOE). BMA is now under the stream of “Growing Success”. Join us for the protection of the future of our children through continuing empowerment, motivation and dedication. BMA considers your children as our trust to teach them with care, belief, respect, integrity & manners.
