Ontario's Information and Privacy Commissioner, Ann Cavoukian, is probably the most high profile privacy advocate in Canada. Though she oversees Ontario's public sector privacy law (and now the Personal Health Information Protection Act), she is regarded as one of the country's foremost authorities on private sector privacy as well. (She is co-author of The Privacy Payoff: How Successful Businesses Build Customer Trust.)
Though strictly beyond her jurisdiction, her office has assembled a good set of resources for the private sector in adopting privacy best practices. The presentations and publications on privacy topics are top-notch, as well.
In short, the Information and Privacy Commisioner's site should be bookmarked and checked regularly.
