The Legislature of Alberta is about the begin consultations on the Personal Information Protection Act, which is the province's general private sector and employee privacy law.
Committee seeks public input on review of Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA):
Edmonton- An Alberta Legislative Assembly all-party committee is currently reviewing the Personal Information Protection Act. Following an initial orientation meeting held June 28, the committee will meet again in the Fall to begin a comprehensive review of the Act.
"We want to consult with as many people as we can who are governed by this legislation" said Mrs. Cindy Ady, MLA, Calgary-Shaw and Chair of the Select Special Personal Information Protection Act Review Committee. "We want to ensure that there is an appropriate balance of the right of an individual to have personal information protected and the organization's need to collect, use and disclose personal information."
Ady explained that the committee will actively consult with Albertans throughout the review and encourages those with an interest to download the discussion guide from the website at www.pipareview.ab.ca
"Public input and consultation is important for this review," said Ady. "We are advertising to the public the ways in which they can become involved and will make all relevant documentation available on a committee website."
