now called Strategy and Innovation Policy Sector (SIPS)
This Addendum was developed to clarify several elements of the May 2017 Update Report on Developments in Data Protection Law in Canada (2001-2017), as requested by the European Commission. Additional information is provided on elements relating to the oversight role of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). Moreover, this Addendum includes further information on the OPC policies and procedures on enforcement, a summary of trends related to PIPEDA investigations, an overview of “substantially similar” designations under the Act, and an explanation of compliance agreements and how they are being used. Reports are regularly provided to the European Commission to assist in fulfilling its obligations under Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/2295 to monitor Canada’s European Union adequacy designation.
