Canadian Privacy Law Update

The club of Canadian provinces with private-sector privacy legislation welcomes a new member this year: Manitoba has passed the The Personal Information Protection and Identity Theft Prevention Act (PIPITPA), joining B.C., Alberta and Quebec. In other provinces, the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act governs private sector privacy. Of course, most provinces have enacted some form of public sector privacy law, and many also have health-information laws. The Manitoba private-sector law follows the consent-based privacy regime of other Canadian provinces.

This law has yet to be proclaimed into law. Stay tuned.
