OFFICE OF THE PRIVACY COMMISSIONER OF CANADA DEVELOPED RECOMMENDATIONS FOR NEW FEDERAL PRIVATE SECTOR PRIVACY LAW
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has developed several recommendations for a new federal private sector privacy law to replace the current Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
These recommendations consider proposals from the government on Bill C-11, the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 which died on the order paper with the 2021 federal election call. The government has said it plans to introduce a new bill.
The recommendations are aimed at supporting the development of a new law that would enable responsible digital innovation within a legal framework that recognizes privacy.
