Data Privacy Week

Banner: Data Privacy Week 2024

Canada and many countries around the world celebrate Data Privacy Week the last week of January each year. What began as Data Privacy Day on January 28 to commemorate the 1981 signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection, has since been expanded into a week-long initiative.

Data Privacy Week highlights the impact technology is having on our privacy rights and underlines the importance of valuing and protecting personal information.

For the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Data Privacy Week is an opportunity to highlight key issues, the role of our Office, and the resources we have developed for individuals, businesses and federal institutions to foster awareness of privacy rights and obligations.

Data Privacy Week 2024

This year, Data Privacy Week is from January 22 to 26, 2024. The theme is “Take control of your data.”

During the week, feel free to share social media posts from our accounts on X (@PrivacyPrivee) and LinkedIn (Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada/Commissariat à la protection de la vie privée). Add the hashtag #DPW2024 to your posts to join the online conversation. With your help, together we can communicate the importance of privacy rights to all Canadians.
