Canada May Soon Have a Data Breach Law

Canadian Industry Minister Tony Clement introduced a bill on May 25, the Safeguarding Canadian’s Personal Information Act (C-29), which would amend Canada’s national privacy legislation, the Personal Information and Electronic Documents Act of 1998 (“PIPEDA”). C-29 would introduce a security breach disclosure (also called “notification” in the United States) requirement in PIPEDA. Canada does not yet have such a law, contrary to the United States where the majority of states have enacted data breach notification statutes.
