Commissioner shares views on Security of Canada Information Sharing Act with Parliament
Today, Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Daniel Therrien, appeared before the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics (ETHI) to discuss the Security of Canada Information Sharing Act (SCISA), which was enacted under Bill C-51, the Anti-terrorism Act, 2015.
In his opening remarks the Commissioner summarized his reservations about the Act and encouraged the Committee to review national security information sharing issues more broadly. He also explained the status of the review the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has undertaken of how SCISA has operated so far and how other legal authorities are used by federal institutions to share information for national security purposes
