Canada’s new privacy legislative reform

Jan 13, 2021

On November 17th, 2020, the Federal government introduced a Bill, entitled the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 (DCIA), proposing significant change to the national framework for the protection of personal information in Canada. If passed, the Bill would establish a new private sector privacy law in Canada, the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA), and a new Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal.

The Osler Privacy Team is offering a series of events and resources to help you prepare for the impact of the proposed legislation on your operations.
