Privacy Law

img7Around the world, access to information and privacy are rapidly evolving areas of law. In Canada, there are distinctly different issues and legal frameworks for private and public sector organizations. We work with clients to develop policies that promote compliance with access to information and privacy laws and systems to manage critical aspects of our clients’ operations.

We typically begin with a privacy review and then move into education and training in conjunction with policy changes to ensure that everyone in a client’s organization understands their obligations and procedures. In addition to staff training, we can provide customized training for executives and senior management to help ensure that human resources management and marketing initiatives are on side with all pertinent privacy laws.

For some clients a privacy policy may be an integral part of a successful marketing strategy for others it may represent only a small proportion of their day to day activities. In either case, we tailor our advice so that as our client, you receive the help you need, when you need it.

A large amount of legal activity is anticipated with the introduction of the Canadian Anti Spam Legislation (CASL) in summer 2014. We can provide reviews of customer engagement practices of our clients as part of our enquiries and highlight any possible practices that may breach either the new CASL or privacy legislation.
