On November 17, 2020, Minister Navdeep Bains presented Bill C-11, the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020, for its first reading in the House of Commons. The Act may result in radical changes to Canada’s federal private-sector data protection legislation.

If passed, the Act will require a number of significant adjustments to the way organizations handle and manage personal information. Among other things, the Act will require organizations to abide by new conditions for obtaining valid consent, and develop and implement both a privacy management program and processes for giving effect to an individual’s right to request that their personal information be deleted or transferred to another organization.

Organizations that do not comply with these proposed changes would face significant penalties of up to the greater of $25 million CAD or five percent of the organization’s gross global revenue.

Join McMillan’s Privacy and Data Protection group on Wednesday, January 20th, 2021 as we help you start to consider these significant potential changes and what they may mean for you and your organization.

This program is eligible for up to 1 hour Substantive CPD in Ontario, 1 hour CPD in BC and 1 Quebec CLE Hour.
