Happy Together: Privacy and Competition Law in a Digital Economy


Hear how the Competition Bureau Canada and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) each have a role to play in protecting the privacy of Canadians. Competition Bureau Deputy Commissioner Josephine Palumbo and OPC Deputy Commissioner Brent Homan will discuss with privacy and competition lawyer Bill Hearn how the OPC and the Competition Bureau protect and enforce privacy in its human rights and consumer protection dimensions. The 2019 and 2020 investigations into Facebook, which resulted in a major joint investigation into by the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia and a subsequent $9 million settlement between Facebook and the Competition Bureau demonstrated that there is overlapping jurisdiction and many tools in the regulatory toolbox to protect Canadians. This session will look forward since Facebook to learn how the regulators can work together and what obstacles they may face.
