The Digital Privacy Act (formerly known as Bill S-4), received Royal Assent in June 2015, resulting in a number of significant amendments to Canada’s federal private sector privacy law, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).
Many amendments came into force upon Royal Assent, while those relating to “breaches of security safeguards” (which generally include incidents commonly referred to as data breaches) will come into force following associated regulations being developed and put into place by the federal government.
