End of clause-by-clause consideration of Quebec privacy Bill 64: Where we stand

On August 24, the Committee on Institutions of the Québec National Assembly completed its clause-by-clause consideration of Bill 64, An Act to modernize legislative provisions as regards the protection of personal information (Bill 64), which had begun in February 2021. In our previous bulletin, published at the end of the parliamentary proceedings in June, we discussed key changes made to Bill 64 up to this date.

Building on these previous developments, this bulletin highlights the most recent round of amendments passed in the few Committee sessions held in August. We invite you to consult our amended version of the Act respecting the protection of personal information in the private sector (Private Sector Act) for the exact wording of these amendments.

When the Committee reconvened, it had moved on to the consideration of section 124 of Bill 64 (of which there are 165 in total), which introduced an amendment to section 46 of the Private Sector Act. However, a few earlier sections of Bill 64 that had been suspended were revisited by the Committee in order to be considered for adoption.
