Explore privacy research
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) generates privacy research in a few ways. It conducts in-house research, commissions expert research and provides funding for independent research projects. In addition, the OPC regularly conducts public opinion research with Canadians, Canadian businesses and other audiences to stay abreast of privacy awareness, understanding, attitudes and perceptions.
By funding privacy research that draws from, and includes, Canadian perspectives, we help generate information, insights, analysis, and in some instances, debate—all of which contribute to the protection and promotion of privacy.
