Two Ways to Get Hands-On Learning

To enhance your privacy knowledge before the conference starts, we offer training sessions, and workshops beginning on May 24.

Training Classes

We offer two full days of training on May 24-25, before the Canada Privacy Symposium begins. Choose from a class in Canadian Privacy or Privacy Program Management.

Workshops

On May 25, we offer two half-day workshops that provide a deep dive into one area of privacy:

  1. Deploying Privacy Technology from Strategy to Execution
  2. Canadian Privacy Bar Section Forum

Network at Whatever Time of Day Works Best for You

The Symposium makes it easy to network throughout the conference. Start your day at a networking breakfast, take a seat and join the conversation at a Peer-to-Peer Roundtable, and connect with like-minded privacy pros during industry meet-ups. Make new connections during fast, one-on-one mini meetings at the 5-Minute Mixer and end the day at our conference receptions. At Symposium, we will help you expand your network day and night!

Location

The Symposium returns this year to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre with reconfigured breakout space to ensure safe and comfortable networking and learning, plus a new breakout room.
