Since it came into force in 2004, British Columbia’s private sector privacy legislation, the Personal Information Protection Act, has had a significant impact on the way British Columbia employers collect, use and disclose the personal information of their employees and others. The last review of the Act took place in 2008. A Special Committee is currently undertaking a review of the Act, including public consultation. If you or your organization are interested in participating in the consultation, you can do so by:
- Attending a public hearing on September 8 or 9, 2014; or
- Making written submissions to the Committee on or before September 19, 2014.
You can find more information about the review and how to participate here.
