We are surrounded by privacy issues.  A week doesn’t go by without someone telling you that you must do something, or must not do something because of privacy. Canada has federal privacy legislation that impacts EVERY organization.  In addition Alberta, BC and Quebec have comprehensive privacy legislation while the other provinces have privacy commissioners and targeted privacy policy, like Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA).  Cross-border business to the USA, Europe or elsewhere?

Satisfy legislative requirements, minimize your risk, and use your privacy processes as a positive statement to your customers and workers.  The Canadian Privacy Institute offers assessment of your current program, can provide comprehensive policy and procedures for a new program, develops targeted education/training using your own organization’s programs, forms, and policies.
