Privacy Awareness Week

Privacy Awareness Week is a global effort held in May, coordinated by members of the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities (APPA), to promote awareness of privacy issues and the importance of the protection of personal information. Each year, various members of APPA develop resources and communications materials to support their activities during the week.

Privacy Awareness Week 2024

This year’s theme is Privacy and technology: Improving transparency, accountability, and security, and the Canadian awareness campaign will run from May 6 to 10.

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 #PAW2024 to your posts to join the online conversation. Let’s communicate the importance of privacy rights to all Canadians and organizations.
