Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s submission to Parliament on Bill C-51

GATINEAU, Quebec, March 6, 2015 – Privacy Commissioner of Canada Daniel Therrien has submitted to Parliament his views on Bill C-51, the Anti-Terrorism Act, 2015.

The Commissioner’s submission to the Commons committee reviewing the Bill highlights a number of concerns about how Part 1 of the Bill, which would create a new Security of Canada Information Sharing Act, will negatively impact the privacy rights of Canadians. He also proposes a number of recommendations aimed at bolstering privacy protections.

The Commissioner would welcome the opportunity to appear before the Commons Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security (SECU) to further discuss his concerns with Parliamentarians.

The submission is available online on the OPC website.
