The Understanding Your Privacy Rights: PIPEDA in Signs project created English and French “simple language” texts, and American Sign Language (ASL) and Langue des Sourds du Québec(LSQ) videos that explain the main principles and requirements of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act. These products seek to make PIPEDA more accessible for individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing, functionally illiterate, intellectually/developmentally disabled, or autistic. They are also useful resources for the businesses and organizations that work with these individuals.
