On May 25, 2018, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Daniel Therrien, sent a letter to the Standing Senate Committee on Banking, Trade and Commerce to follow-up on concerns he raised during his appearance on May 22, 2018 with respect to Bill C-74, Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 1.
The Committee requested the Commissioner put forward amendments to ensure the objectives of the financial technology sections of the bill are balanced with robust privacy protections.
