OPC involvement in PIPEDA judicial proceedings

In overseeing compliance with the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), the OPC is sometimes involved in judicial proceedings as a party, as an added party, or as an intervener, to seek enforcement of the Act, and/or to assist courts in advancing the legal interpretation and application of the Act. The OPC sometimes intervenes in foreign judicial proceedings, where appropriate, in order to influence the evolution of decisions that have the potential of affecting the privacy rights of Canadians, particularly where trans-border data flows are involved. 

Our Office’s involvement in judicial proceedings pertaining to PIPEDA is documented in our annual reports to Parliament.
