Last week, Bill C-27 – also known as the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022 – completed its second reading in Canada’s House of Commons, bringing Canada one step closer to privacy law reform.

If passed, the Act will result in material changes to Canada’s federal private sector privacy legislation and require a number of significant adjustments to the way organizations handle and manage personal information, backed by steep potential penalties for non-compliance.

Join Kristen Pennington and Mitch Koczerginski, Partners in McMillan’s Privacy and Data Protection Group, as we help you start to consider these significant potential developments and what they may mean for your organization.
