The Canadian Bar Association’s Privacy and Access Law Section and the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association (collectively the CBA Sections) support the current framework of legislation to protect privacy and support the balance between the current requirement of obtaining knowledge and consent before collecting, using or disclosing PI. The CBA Sections do not propose a new consent model or additions to the current model in PIPEDA. The CBA Sections continues to rely on the courts and existing OPC investigation and powers for enforcement.
