On Tuesday, November 17, 2020, the House of Commons introduced new draft legislation overhauling Canada's private sector privacy laws. Canada's proposed Consumer Privacy Protection Act (included as part of Bill C-11), which would reform the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, establishes bold new obligations and imposes some of the highest fines of data protection laws around the world. Numerous businesses and other data-collecting organizations that fail to familiarize themselves with the regulations associated with the information they collect may face steep penalties as a result.

Join privacy and data security legal experts Paige Backman, Don Johnston, Aaron Baer and Andy Nguyen as they review and discuss the changes and implications the passing of Bill C-11 will bring forth for your organization. Gain insight into how this proposed legislation will reshape Canada's privacy framework on both a federal and provincial level.

Topics include:

New rights the passing of Bill C-11 will bring forth for individuals

New obligations for businesses operating within Canada

Impact on service provider relationships

Updates to transborder data flow regulations

Implementation of steep fines for violations and private right of action
