Privacy Legislation - It Is Here!
January 1, 2004 is the date. The complex provisions of privacy legislation will affect all Canadian not-for-profits and charities on January 1, 2004. On that date, the federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act ("PIPEDA") will be in force in all Provinces that have not enacted their own privacy legislation. PIPEDA has been in force since January 1, 2001 for federally regulated organizations, such as banks and airlines, and for organizations selling personal information across provincial boundaries.
