The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada has announced a revision to the framework of its consultation on transfers for processing and transborder data flows. The prior consultation has been superseded after the OPC considered Canada's recently introduced Digital Charter. "The decision to change our approach to the consultation was made following the publication by the federal government of its Digital Charter on May 21, which suggests transborder data flows may be dealt with in an eventual new federal privacy law," the OPC said in its release. "The OPC now invites stakeholder views both on how the current law should be interpreted and applied in these contexts, and on how a future law should provide effective privacy protection in the context of transfers for processing." The deadline to submit opinions is Aug. 6.
