Why This Privacy Law is Important:
The law would update consent rules, require data portability, provide users with a means to control their online identity and allow individuals to request that organizations dispose of personal information and permit individuals to withdraw consent for the use of their information.
Through the proposed Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 (DCIA), the Government of Canada intends to establish a new privacy law for the private sector: the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA). If passed, the DCIA would significantly increase protections to Canadians' personal information by giving Canadians more control and greater transparency when companies handle their personal information.
Who it Applies to:
- Companies located in Canada who have up to 5% of revenue or C$25 million, whichever is greater, will have to comply with this proposed law.
