Privacy Officer

Chelsea Cannon is the Privacy Officer for Payukotayno James & Hudson Bay Family Services. Secondary roles include chairing the Indigenous Information System Request for Proposal Review Committee and involvement with multiple privacy designate working groups. She uses her creative skills and analytical mind to develop innovative ways to build the privacy program at her agency and contribute to this growing area in the sector. Chelsea works within the Indigenous child and family wellbeing space and continues to make strides to decolonize practices whenever possible; this includes working with First Nation leadership, understanding how to apply OCAP® principles and respect Indigenous data sovereignty. She does this while working in a provincial government structure that is not currently designed to acknowledge these and navigates balancing provincial privacy requirements and Indigenous community rights.
