OPC 2010 Draft Consultations Report - Call for Comments

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has released a draft report on their Consumer Privacy Consultations held earlier this year. Comments are invited before a final report is prepared for publication in 2011.

The OPC Consumer Privacy Consultations looked at online tracking, profiling and targeting, and cloud computing, with the aim of learning more about certain industry practices, exploring their privacy implications, and finding out what privacy protections Canadians expect with respect to these practices. These consultations were also intended to inform the next legislative review process for the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

The draft report highlight issues that the OPC intends to focus on, as well as certain areas where they are seeking additional input from stakeholders on certain topics.

Comments should be sent no later than November 26, 2010, to consultations1@priv.gc.ca or by mail to:

2010 Consumer Privacy Consultations,
Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada,
112 Kent Street,
Ottawa, ON, K1A 1H3.
