Description:

Canada's New Bill to Reform Private Sector Data Protection

The much-awaited bill to reform Canada's private sector data protection law was tabled on November 17, 2020. The ambitious bill presents a major (and often significant) rewriting of the previous bill and contains some new rights and new exceptions. It also creates a more stringent enforcement regime. This talk will highlight some of the most significant changes introduced by the bill and will flag some gaps and omissions.  It will also raise some questions worth pursuing as the bill moves to the consultation stage.
