A Moment of Privacy - Research Video Series


Option consommateurs



Project Leader(s)

Maryse Guénette, Head of Research and Advocacy Services


Option consommateurs produced four videos explaining research funded by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada's Contributions Program. Under the theme "A Moment of Privacy", these videos are inspired by the Three Minute Thesis competition and recent Web initiatives in science outreach.

Each video deals with a subject that falls under one of the OPC's four strategic privacy priorities. In each one, a researcher explains the results of their research in their own words.

The topics and presenters are as follows:

  • "The Connected Car: Who is in the Driver's seat?" Philippa Lawson, British Columbia Freedom of Information and Privacy Association (Economics of Privacy)
  • "Seeing Through the Cloud: National Jurisdiction and Location of Data, Servers, and Networks Still Matter in a Digitally Interconnected World". Heidi Bohaker, University of Toronto (Government Surveillance)
  • "Young Canadians in a Wired World". Matthew Johnson, MediaSmarts (Reputation and Privacy)
  • "Comparative Analysis of Fitness Tracker Privacy and Security". Andrew Hilts, Open Effect (The Body as Information)

The videos will be posted on YouTube. Option consommateurs will promote them via social media, its Internet site, its newsletter and by contacting its partners.
