In his office’s 2018 annual report, Ontario Information and Privacy Commissioner Brian Beamish laid out initiatives to bolster privacy protections within the province, Law Times reports. In the report, Beamish called for Ontario’s privacy laws to be modernized, more oversight of political parties, the use of artificial intelligence to combat health care privacy breaches and to address risks associated with smart-city technologies. “The use of data and technology must not come at the expense of privacy,” Beamish said in a statement. “Ontario needs an updated legislative framework that includes effective and independent oversight of practices related to personal information.”
