Privacy Law

In Canada, there are two pieces of legislation governing privacy.

The Privacy Act requires government departments and government agencies respect privacy by limiting the amount of personal information collected and used and requiring this to be disclosed to Canadians. In addition, the Privacy Act gives all Canadians the right to access personal information at request changes to it. The Canadian private sector is governed by the Personal Information Protections and Electronics Document Act (PIPEDA) which legislates how companies may collect, use and disclose personal information during the course of business. PIPEDA also provides Canadian with the right to access and change this information when requested.
