International Association of Privacy Professionals Canada (IAPP Canada)




IAPP Canada’s KnowledgeNet program brings together privacy and data protection professionals for education and networking with peers. KnowledgeNet meetings feature experts’ presentations on topics of timely relevance, and the chance for attendees to ask questions, share experiences, mingle with colleagues, and make new acquaintances. The meetings occur regularly, are free of charge and usually include complimentary breakfast or lunch.

As soon as the OPC contribution was announced, IAPP Canada received a tremendous amount of support from volunteers and enthusiastic privacy professionals from other cities as well. As a result, IAPP increased the number of Canada-based KnowledgeNet meetings from 2 meetings a year based in Toronto to 16 meetings through to mid-March 2010 across the entire country. New cities that hosted and seem committed to hosting future KnowledgeNet meetings include Edmonton, Montreal, St. John’s NL, Ottawa, Vancouver, and Victoria.

In total, approximately 450 people attended KnowledgeNet meetings with the aid of the OPC contribution.
