Public consultation on the Privacy Act – Submission – Glenn Brown

Cette soumission n’est disponible qu’en anglais.

Having consulted on the original PIPEDA (one, I believe, of only 19 in the general public), I have read this entire document carefully. It certainly demonstrates the complexity of the matter in great detail, and I commend the government for looking so carefully and broadly. I paid particular attention to the matters of consent, having spent seven years on a Research Ethics Board at a local university, and being familiar with the Tricouncil Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans.

I applaud the general direction of the suggestions to clarify, detail, and expand the protections for the individual, including what the courts can do, and the broadening interpretation regarding administrative procedures.

Thank you for your work. I hope to keep informed on your progress.
