    I am putting together a short statement to add to our new hire package to let staff know that we use video surveillance in our locations, we have both retail & warehouse locations.

    I am also creating a policy around workplace video surveillance. We operate in Manitoba, Ontario & Saskatchewan.

    Can you provide an example of a short statement to use as well as if this should be different for each of the provinces that we operate in?

    Thank you.
