The winds of change are swirling around privacy law in Canada. The federal government has introduced Bill C-11 into Parliament, which will impose new and potentially onerous obligations on every Canadian business, backed up by significant monetary penalties.
On December 7, 2020, Cassels hosted “Canadian Privacy Law: Bill C-11 Reimagines PIPEDA for a GDPR World.” This webinar outlined what every Canadian business needs to know in order to get ready for Canada’s new privacy law, including details on:
- Mandatory privacy management programs
- Tighter consent rules
- Enhanced individual control over personal information
- Penalties of up to $10 million, or 3% of global revenue, whichever is greater
