Consumer Privacy Protection Act and the Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal Act

The federal minority government released draft legislation to update and modernize Canada’s federal private sector privacy legislation.

The proposed changes will be implemented through the Digital Charter Implementation Act. It amends a number of pieces of legislation. First, Part 1 amends and renames PIPEDA, which will be known as the Consumer Privacy Protection Act. Part 2 establishes a specialized privacy and data protection tribunal through the Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal Act.
