Canada’s Bill C-27 drew inspiration from developments in Europe and Singapore’s handling of legitimate business interests, and Canada’s proximity to the United States means that privacy compliance programs must often interoperate with our biggest trading partner. Be sure to catch this session to stay up-to-date on international developments.

Access to Information: What Every Lawyer Needs to Know

Access to information laws may be used to understand responses to government consultations to inform journalists, lobbyists and civil society. Competitors may seek access to commercial agreements for business intelligence. Individuals may seek information as a prelude to asserting legal rights. Our moderator and speakers will review topical issues that every lawyer needs to know. Whether you are a seasoned access to information lawyer or just starting out, this session will provide a timely update on key issues and trends.

While similar in many respects to Bill C-11, Bill C-27  introduces some important new changes. This panel will discuss how Bill C-27 proposes to change the privacy landscape in Canada for both individuals and organizations, how these changes are likely to impact organizations’ privacy compliance programs, including with respect to the interoperability of multiple privacy laws in Canada and beyond, and how the new enforcement regime can be expected to play out in practice.
