Government of Canada Announces Digital Charter

This week, the federal government announced Canada’s Digital Charter aiming to create trust in the digital world by protecting privacy and personal control of data. The government proposes to modernize the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act to clarify “what information individuals should receive when they provide consent; certain exceptions to consent; data mobility; deletion and withdrawal of consent; incentives for certification, codes, standards, and data trusts; enhanced powers for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner; as well as certain modernizations to the structure of the law itself and various definitions.”
