Commissioner appears before parliamentary committee to discuss online reputation

Today, Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Daniel Therrien, appeared before the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics to discuss the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s recently released draft Position on Online Reputation.

The draft position aims to highlight existing protections in Canada’s federal private sector privacy law, identify potential legislative changes and propose other solutions for consideration. The report sets out recourses, such as the right to ask search engines to de-index web pages and takedown of online information, and emphasizes the need for education.
