Marco Gomez, Project Administrator


Vulnerable Canadians are at greater risk of compromising their online privacy security.

ACORN Canada’s “Protect Your Privacy—Online!” project aims to address this gap in privacy security education by educating vulnerable Canadians on PIPEDA, and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner’s strategic privacy priorities of economics of personal information, government surveillance, reputation and privacy, and the body as information.

Drawing extensively from previous OPC-funded projects and the Office’s online resources, this educational program developed accessible language workshops and an informational booklet targeted at vulnerable Canadians. Three in-class privacy workshops were developed and delivered, and 8,000 informational handbooks were distributed to vulnerable Canadians.

ACORN Canada’s “Protect Your Privacy—Online!” project aims to enhance vulnerable Canadians’ online privacy knowledge, providing participants with the necessary tools to confidently participate in the digital world.
