What SMBs Need to Know about Bill C-27?
In today’s economy, organization competitiveness depends on the ability to use digital innovation to harness the power of data. Data privacy and security have since become one of the defining social issues of our era.
On June 16, 2022, the Canadian government tabled Bill C-27, an act to enact the Consumer Privacy Protection Act, the Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal Act and the Artificial Intelligence and Data Act, and to make consequential and related amendments to other Acts. Bill C-27 is a re-working of Bill C-11, and is designed to update Canada’s federal private sector privacy law to create a new tribunal and propose new rules for AI systems.
