The Privacy Commissioner of Canada is responsible for overseeing compliance with federal privacy laws. There are also privacy commissioners and ombudsmen across Canada that also have responsibilities for overseeing privacy laws in the provinces and territories.

As we are all united in the effort to protect and promote privacy rights, we will occasionally issue joint resolutions to express consensus on matters of public policy, outline shared concerns or support on certain issues.
