Privacy Commissioner publishes responses to its consultation on consent and privacy

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) posted, earlier this week, the 51 submissions it received in response to its consultation on consent under the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). The consultation is looking to identify improvements to the current consent model currently challenged.

I have submitted my comments as part of this consultation. Other submissions were made from individuals, organizations, academics, advocacy groups, amongts others. The OPC plans to apply those improvements within its jurisdiction and recommend other changes to Parliament, as appropriate.
