Show Notes

On 17 November 2020, the Canadian Minister of Information Science and Economic Development, Navdeep Bains, introduced bill C-11, the long-awaited update to the federal Canadian privacy legislation. For many years, this legislative update had been rumoured, and now that it was finally put on the table, we can see some sweeping changes. The Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020, which includes the Consumer Privacy Protection Act, "would significantly increase protections to Canadians' personal information by giving Canadians more control and greater transparency when companies handle their personal information", the minister said. 

This week, we will take a look at what the new Canadian law might bring, how it would impact companies doing business in Canada and what novel approaches might be an inspiration for the rest of the privacy community. Our guests are two Canadian powerhouses: former Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart (now at Fasken), and nNovation counsel Constantine Karbaliotis. Both share their views on the federal and provincial legislative developments in Canada and look ahead at the potential impact of the new legislation.
