Privacy in Quebec is about to get a major makeover — one that may lead to wider reforms across Canada. In September, lawmakers enacted Bill 64, which aims to modernize crucial aspects of the various laws governing individuals’ privacy in Quebec, amending provisions involving consent, data protection officers, notice, individuals’ rights, and more.
It is important for privacy professionals across Canada to understand the operational impacts posed by Bill 64 given the chance that all provinces may soon follow suit in modernizing their privacy and data protection statutes.
