On November 17, 2020, the Government of Canada introduced the proposed Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020, which modernizes the framework for the protection of personal information in the private sector. In a press release, Federal MP for the Pontiac William Amos welcomes New proposed law to better protect Canadians’ privacy and increase their control over personal information.

“I have seen right here in the Pontiac how many more people have changed their way of life and embraced digital technologies. However, it is important that data remains safe and people know that their privacy is protected. The new legislation and the Digital Charter contribute to building a Canada where citizens can be assured that their privacy is safe.”, William Amos said in the press release.

This legislation takes a number of important steps to ensure that Canadians will be protected by a modern and responsive law and that innovative businesses will benefit from clear rules, even as technology continues to evolve.

Quick facts:

  • The Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2020 advances the Digital Charter and its 10 principles
  • The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada will continue to oversee organizations’ compliance with the privacy law and have the power to issue orders and make recommendations for administrative monetary penalties
  • A new Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal will be created to levy these administrative monetary penalties and hear appeals of the orders.
