CIPPIC comments on proposed investigative bodies under PIPEDA

| November 24, 2003

CIPPIC filed comments on Industry Canada's proposed new "investigative bodies" under Protection of Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act ("PIPEDA"), arguing that the criteria for "investigative body" status need to be much more clear and rigorous, and that at least one of the applications should be denied. Under the Act, designated "investigative bodies" can receive and disclose personal information without the knowledge or consent of the individuals concerned. PIPEDA Submission HTML version
