Canada is a global leader in privacy and access to information law, on both the federal and provincial levels. Privacy and confidentiality of information is protected in the private and public sectors, and is balanced with the concepts of transparency and accountability. However, the rights provided in the laws are evolving as new technologies and global developments create challenges for both privacy and access. Issues of privacy on the internet and consumer rights in an electronic health system are pushing the boundaries of existing legislation. In the access sphere, technology is facilitating a shift from reactive disclosure to "open government".
This conference will bring together regulators and access administrators from the federal and provincial governments to discuss these challenges. They will be joined by some of the foremost thinkers in academia and industry as well as lawyers and privacy professionals from within government and the private sector.
As privacy and access to information laws continue to evolve, and Canada continues to be a leader, the Symposium is your opportunity to hear thought leaders and join in the discussion of recent developments and the issues that Canada will face in the future as technology continues to globalize information.
