2023 event highlights
The IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium was the biggest ever in 2023, with almost 1,000 people in attendance from all over Canada for compelling keynotes, banner breakout sessions, top-notch trainings and deep-dive workshops.
Privacy Commissioner of Canada Philippe Dufresne gave his first Symposium keynote, sharing his vision for Canadian privacy, a slew of recommendations to Parliament on Bill C-27 and stating he would be investigating ChatGPT with several provincial data protection authorities.
Ian Kerr Memorial lecturer Kristen Thomasen spoke about the lack of rights that people have when they are in public spaces. The Commissioners’ Game Show featured six commissioners from British Columbia to Labrador and was fun and informative for all.
Between the speakers, panels and networking sessions, there was a lot of discussion about the governance of artificial intelligence, the role privacy pros should play in that and how this rapidly-evolving technology could be regulated in Canada.
Other popular topics included the Quebec law, privacy-enhancing technologies like deidentification and anonymization and much, much more.
