New Canadian Privacy Laws (‘Bill C-11'): The Consumer Privacy Protection Act and its Business Impacts
On November 17, 2020, the Digital Charter Implementation Act (‘Bill C-11′), was tabled in the House of Commons. If passed, Bill C-11 will significantly overhaul Canada’s federal private sector privacy laws, effectively replacing the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act with the new Consumer Protection Privacy Act. Bill C-11 will also result in the creation of a new enforcement tribunal through implementation of the Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal Act.
Join OneTrust DataGuidance and Edwards, Kenny & Bray LLP for a webinar discussing Bill C-11’s proposed reforms and their impact on organizations doing business in Canada.
Key topics that will be covered include:
increased enforcement mechanisms; valid consent; accountability and privacy management; individual rights; cross-border transfers; consistency with GDPR; and impact on provincial privacy laws.
