The Commission d'accès à l'information (CAI) has prepared draft guidelines on the criteria for the validity of consent under Law 25's amendments to Quebec’s private and public sector privacy legislation. The CAI is holding a six-week consultation, ending on June 25, 2023, to seek stakeholder feedback on the text of these guidelines.
The draft guidelines contain detailed commentary on how to comply with the consent and related requirements under Quebec's private and public sector privacy legislation. As of September 22, 2023, failure to comply with these and other requirements will expose organizations to potentially severe financial penalties, up to $25 million or 4% of worldwide turnover.
Join Adam Kardash, Joanna Fine, and Julien Morissette for this on-demand AccessPrivacy online workshop, as they moderate a in-depth discussion designed to help organizations and trade associations understand the scope, meaning, and impact of the proposed guidelines, and to help prepare submissions for the CAI's consultation.
A copy of the recording will be submitted to the CAI as part of the consultation process.
