On September 17, 2018, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) published draft guidelines on mandatory breach reporting under the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

The guidelines are intended to assist organizations in meeting their breach reporting and record-keeping obligations under PIPEDA’s mandatory breach reporting regime, which comes into force on November 1, 2018. Organizations have until October 2, 2018 to provide feedback on these draft guidelines.

Review the press release and draft guidelines on the OPC's website and a summary on Blakes Businness Class' website.
