C-26, r. 212 - Code of ethics of psychologists

Full text
18. Psychologists may communicate information protected by professional secrecy to prevent an act of violence, including a suicide, where they have reasonable cause to believe that there is an imminent danger of death or serious bodily injury to a person or an identifiable group of persons.
Despite the foregoing, psychologists may only communicate the information to a person exposed to the danger or that person’s representative, and to the persons who can come to that person’s aid.
Psychologists may only communicate such information as is necessary to achieve the purposes for which the information is communicated.
