In June, the Ontario government released a White Paper entitled Modernizing Privacy in Ontario Empowering Ontarians and Enabling the Digital Economy, which sets out a proposal for privacy legislation that would apply to the private sector.
The Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA) will make substantial changes to Canada’s privacy law. In this post I examine the significant proposed changes to the law as they relate to personal information that has been “de-identified”.
Federal privacy laws are getting an update. The federal government has introduced a new bill which proposes to tighten and clarify the law around the protection of personal information and personal privacy and also give enforcement more teeth.
