Privacy Commissioner of Canada Philippe Dufresne delivered a speech at the Access to Information and Privacy community meeting on January 25, 2023. The Commissioner thanked the ATIP community for their work in service of Canada and Canadians, noting that: “The contributions of this community are vitally important, as is your commitment to accountability, transparency, and the protection of privacy in the work that you do, which builds trust in our democratic institutions. This has never been more important than it is now.”

Commissioner Dufresne’s address focused on the three key pillars underpinning his vision for privacy and supporting the desire of Canadians to be active and informed digital citizens, able to fully participate in society and the economy without having to choose between this participation and their fundamental privacy rights.
