Completed projects from the OPC’s Contributions Program’s 2022-2023 cycle explore the impact of privacy issues on diverse groups

February 19, 2024

The information that the Amazon Ring doorbell collects and how it shares it, the application of privacy law to First Nations, and a privacy analysis of technologies that are used in the commission of intimate partner abuse were among the issues explored in the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s 2022-2023 Contributions Program cycle.

The OPC has published the final summaries of the funded projects, as well as links to the final reports and products. The theme of the completed funding year was: Who is impacted and how: assessing and mitigating privacy risks, barriers and inequalities.

Other research and public awareness projects that were funded in the cycle include an examination of the experiences that persons with disabilities have in relation to consent and privacy, as well as public perceptions of facial recognition technology.

For a full list of the completed projects with summaries, see Completed Contributions Program projects.

The Contributions Program funds independent privacy research and initiatives that generate new ideas, approaches, and knowledge to help organizations better safeguard personal information and help Canadians make more informed decisions about how to protect their privacy.

The Program was created in 2004 to support arm’s-length, non-profit research on privacy, further privacy policy development, and promote the protection of personal information in Canada. Since then, it has allocated approximately $8.5 million to more than 190 projects.
