Funding for privacy research and knowledge translation
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) funds independent privacy research and related knowledge translation initiatives through its Contributions Program.
The goal of the program is to generate new ideas, approaches and knowledge about privacy that organizations can apply to better safeguard personal information and that individual Canadians can use to make more informed decisions about protecting their privacy.
