Privacy Commissioner submits further observations on the review of Bill C-59

On March 19, 2018, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Daniel Therrien, sent a letter to the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security to support the Committee's review of Bill C-59, An Act Respecting National Security Matters. It provides further clarification for a letter he submitted to the Committee on March 5, 2018. Both letters follow-up on his December 2017 appearance before the Standing Committee on the subject of Bill C-59.

Bill C-59 is the legislation proposed by the Government of Canada following its public consultation on Canada’s national security framework. Commissioner Therrien, along with his provincial and territorial counterparts, made a formal submission to the government’s consultation in December 2016.
