Consultation on consent under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act
The period for contributing to this consultation has ended. Thank you to all who contributed.
In May 2016, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) launched a consultation and call for input on the issue of consent under the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
The goal of the consultation is to identify improvements to the current consent model and bring clearer definition to the roles and responsibilities of the various players who could implement them. The OPC plans to apply those improvements within its jurisdiction and recommend other changes to Parliament as appropriate.
