Privacy in the Public and Private Sectors
Privacy can be a difficult concept to grasp. It is highly contextual with a fluidity that poses legal and ethical challenges for individuals, business organizations and even government institutions. Nonetheless, privacy concerns are becoming increasingly important in today's information-gathering society and there has been extraordinary growth in the law of privacy in the last two decades.
Author Michael Power is a leading authority on Canadian privacy law and issues concerning the protection of personal information. His book is a comprehensive treatise providing a thorough overview of Canadian privacy law. Includes two main sections:
- Personal Information Protection in Canada – Legislation and statutes; the meaning of "personal information"; the collection, use and management of personal information in the public, private and health sectors; security and breach notification; borders and boundaries; and enforcement
- Privacy – Common law and arbitral decisions; privacy and the Charter; privacy in Canadian tort law; criminal law; and employment
Clarifies how Canada's privacy laws affect three important entities across three different sectors:
- Public sector "institutions" (which include the police in a Charter context)
- Private sector "organizations" subject to personal information protection statutes
- Health sector "custodians", recognizing that a few jurisdictions characterize this third type as "trustees"
Features unique chapters covering:
- Security requirements and breach notification laws in Canada in the private, public and health sectors
- Canadian laws concerning cross-border data flows which can impact outsourcing and affect cloud computing initiatives
Includes a helpful annex:
- Provides guidance on how to manage personal information, including how to build privacy management frameworks and the privacy issues that must be addressed in outsourcing and procurement
