Privacy Commissioner releases publication highlighting independent privacy research projects funded by Contributions Program

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has released the latest edition of Real Results—a publication highlighting the innovative and socially relevant independent privacy research and knowledge translation projects funded by the OPC Contributions Program over the past few years.

The new edition of Real Results features funded projects that explore a range of emerging privacy issues—police background checks, the use of genealogical information, and telematics systems in cars—as well as some innovative approaches for helping young people learn to protect their privacy. The stories feature key findings of the projects, as well as commentaries and ideas from the researchers themselves that illustrate the issues and the impact of their work.

The OPC Contributions Program funds independent privacy research and related knowledge translation initiatives. These projects not only advance the collective knowledge on privacy, they provide real, tangible research results that Canadians can use to make decisions about privacy protection in their own lives.

To explore all research and knowledge translation projects funded by the OPC Contributions Program, see the Contributions Program projects listed by year on our website.
