Threats to privacy primarily occur due to new ways in which information is collected and used. Be prepared. Be protected. Understand this important privacy legislation. This Quick Reference explains employer requirements under the Canada Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). PIPEDA applies to organizations that collect, use or disclose personal information within a province or territory, unless that province or territory has passed a law similar to the provisions of this Act. The authors have described the overall requirements of PIPEDA, plus its real and potential impact.

  • Information on legislation in Nova Scotia considered substantially similar to PIPEDA in relation to health information.
  • Updates regarding Supreme Court of Canada decisions in Royal Bank of Canada v. Trang, in relation to implied consent, and Douez v. Facebook, Inc., which raised the possibility of bringing privacy class action suits against international companies.
  • An update on the private right of action under Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL).
