In a dispatch from DLA Piper, Kelly Friedman reports on a recent meeting with senior representatives of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and privacy practitioners to discuss the agency's key priorities. "The information disseminated at this annual meeting is important to all businesses collecting personal information of Canadians for two reasons," the report states. One, it highlights what the OPC considers as its most important actions from last year; and two, it signals the agency's enforcement priorities for 2017. DLA Piper notes three significant topics covered during the March 21 meeting were "the consent conundrum," the "extra-territorial application of PIPEDA," and the "flexible use of compliance agreements." Editor's Note: Privacy Commissioner of Canada Daniel Therrien will be a keynote speaker at this year's IAPP Canada Privacy Symposium in Toronto.
