The final report summarizes what we heard from the submissions, the public discussions, as well as the feedback we received on the draft report.  The final report outlines our views, and how we see the road forward. While this report is not our contribution to the PIPEDA review process and does not contain specific changes to the Act that we would like to see, it does highlight issues that the OPC intends to focus on, as well as certain areas where we continue to seek additional input from stakeholders on certain topics.

In the spring of 2010, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) held consultations with Canadians on online tracking, profiling and targeting; and cloud computing. We received numerous written submissions and held three public events in Toronto, Montreal and Calgary. The goal of the consultations was to learn more about certain industry practices, explore their privacy implications, and find out what privacy protections Canadians expect with respect to these practices. The consultations were also intended to inform the next legislative review process for the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). In October 2010, we released a draft report on the consultations and requested feedback.
