OPC adopts a new organizational structure

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has adopted a new organizational structure in order to support the Privacy Commissioner’s vision to be more proactive and to focus efforts where there can be an impact for the greatest number of Canadians.

The core responsibility of the OPC is the protection of privacy rights of Canadians. To do this, the OPC’s work will now fall into two program areas — Compliance and Promotion. Both areas are part of the OPC’s mandate and are important in protecting privacy.

The OPC’s organizational structure is now comprised of three sectors: the Compliance Sector, the Policy and Promotion Sector, and the Corporate Management Sector. The work of each sector is overseen by a Deputy Commissioner. The three Deputy Commissioners, as well as the Legal Services Directorate, report directly to the Privacy Commissioner. The Commissioner is also supported by the OPC’s Executive Secretariat.

Here is more information about the new organizational structure of the OPC.
