OPC to host new research symposium

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) will be hosting its first Pathways to Privacy Research Symposium at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa on May 2, 2012.

The symposium, which will showcase privacy-related research funded by the OPC’s Contributions Program and other funders, is intended to facilitate a dialogue between the people who do the research and those who apply it, and ultimately, to enable more end-users to benefit from the research. It will also be a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary capacity-building, partnership and networking among researchers.

The theme for this year’s event is Privacy for Everyone and we will be discussing results of research on emerging privacy issues among communities of interest. Topics will include: the changing landscape for youth, reaching diverse populations, cultural perspective on privacy, and frontiers of identification and surveillance among different populations.

This year’s event was organized with the assistance of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). 

Stakeholders have been invited to participate in the discussion and members of the public who are interested in attending are welcome to contact Melissa Goncalves at the OPC ( or 613-947-7097). Please note that limited audience seating will be available.
