Privacy Act reform

The Privacy Act is the law that governs the personal information handling practices of federal government institutions.

The Act was introduced in 1983 and has not had any substantive updates since that time.

Over the years, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has urged the Government to update the Privacy Act to ensure that the law adequately protects Canadians’ rights in an increasingly complex environment.

On this page you will find documents the Office has prepared in relation to Privacy Act reform.
