A new report entitled “Left to Their Own Devices: New Report on the Privacy Implications of Wearable Technology in Canadian Workplaces” co-authored by Steven Richardson and Debra Mackinnon is now available.

Their project was funded by the 2016-2017 Contributions Program of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC). The authors, in association with the Surveillance Studies Centre (SSC) at Queen’s University, conducted an exploratory study of wearable devices in Canadian workplaces. Specifically, in an era where bodies are increasingly being represented by information, their research seeks to highlight the extent and proliferation of these devices, as well as, current information management practices and policy recommendations in the Canadian context.
