Infertility affects 15 per cent of couples in Canada and male infertility contributes to about half of all cases.

For almost 100 years, Mount Sinai has played a pivotal role in furthering care and research in the realms of women’s and infants’ health. Here are some highlights of the ground-breaking work that’s been carried out.
Between September 7th and 10th, 2018, Sinai Health Foundation mailed a fundraising donor information letter and brochure, which you may have received. Unfortunately, the letter contained incorrect names and/or mailing addresses. While there was no personal health information included, your letter may have contained someone else’s name associated with your address. We regret the error and are taking steps to strengthen our mail practices. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
The incident was due to an internal data error at the Foundation. If you have a medical record at our hospitals, it has in no way been impacted. Please rest assured that we are reviewing our procedures and implementing stronger data validation systems to ensure that this does not occur again.
In order to ensure that your personal health information is protected in accordance with the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA), the Foundation only has access to your name and address. The hospital does not provide the Foundation any of your health information, including any care you may have received at Mount Sinai Hospital or Bridgepoint Active Healthcare.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to the Foundation Privacy Office at 416-586-5910. The Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC) has been notified. If you have any privacy concerns that you feel cannot be addressed through the Foundation, you have a right to submit a written complaint to the IPC at: 2 Bloor Street East, Suite 1400 Toronto, ON M4W 1A8.
