As part of Privacy Awareness Week 2023, join the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat’s Privacy and Responsible Data Division as they discuss the definitions of publicly available personal information, improper or unauthorized collection, accuracy of information, and privacy impact assessments.

This informative event will explore how federal institutions that collect, use and disclose publicly available personal information can help ensure their activities are conducted in accordance with the requirements of the Privacy Act and related policy instruments.

Participants will learn practical measures to identify and manage privacy risks, promote accountability and transparency when collecting and handling publicly available personal information.
