Completed Contributions Program projects

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s (OPC) Contributions Program funds independent research and related knowledge translation projects to generate approaches and information about privacy in Canada. These projects not only advance the collective knowledge on privacy, they provide real, tangible research results that Canadians can use to make smart decisions about privacy protection in their own lives and that businesses and federal institutions can apply in practice to enhance compliance with their privacy obligations.

Start here to begin exploring the innovative and socially relevant independent research the OPC has supported through its Contributions Program. You can also view a list of the funded projects underway for the current cycle.
