Quebec’s New Privacy Legislation – Industry Guidance

This series of documents were created by leading Canadian privacy experts working with national and regional industry associations including IAB Canada. We believe a harmonized approach to privacy law across Canadian jurisdictions is important so that the rules are understandable for individuals and enterprises. Interpretations of privacy laws should be pragmatic, reasonable and focus on the privacy outcomes for individuals and practical implementation for enterprises. With this in mind, we have created what we think is appropriate guidance for interpreting some of the more challenging provisions of the Act.
