Major Canadian Privacy Law Reform Proposed by Federal Government – The potential impact for the digital advertising industry
The Federal government has introduced a Bill proposing significant change to the national framework for the protection of personal information in Canada. The long-awaited and much-anticipated Bill, entitled the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 (DCIA), was tabled by the Minister of Innovation, Science, and Industry in Parliament. If passed, the Bill would establish a new private sector privacy law in Canada, the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA), and a new Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal.
