Prior to joining Carleton University in March 2018, Pierce held various privacy related roles within various Government of Canada organizations. With more than eight years of privacy experience, he is fluent in privacy governance, impact assessments, regulatory compliance, auditing, access to information operations, anti-spam compliance, and is proficient in Canada’s official languages.

As a way to give back to the community, Pierce volunteers as a KnowledgeNet Co-Chair for the IAPP Ottawa Chapter. He was previously the chapter’s Young Privacy Professional Leader, where he organized networking events to try and foster continual learning in the evolving privacy world. He also takes on pro bono cases for people that hit a wall trying to access their information, from private and public organizations alike.
When not championing privacy protection, Pierce can be found chasing putting perfection on the other set of links, or Stewie, his miniature poodle.
