Canadian Privacy Law

November 12, 2003: TheLegalNet Privacy Seminar and Cocktail Reception was held on Wednesday, November 12, 2003 at 4:00 PM at The National Club, one of Toronto's most exclusive private clubs on Bay Street.

Effective January 2004, privacy legislation will impose new obligations on ALL companies doing business in Canada regardless of size. Do you know how this law will affect your company, or what you must do to comply in relation to employees, customers and business partners? What information technology changes must a company make? What policies and procedures must be in place? Does the law apply to data that is processed for a company by third parties? Does a company have to designate a privacy compliance officer? Are there any civil and criminal sanctions for non-compliance? Can individuals be held personally liable for the default of their employer or their company's business partners? These and other important questions were answered at the seminar. You can get a copy of the materials on Privacy Law in Canada here.
