FDR is committed to maintaining the highest standards of privacy protection in Canada.
Canada has one main federal privacy law that FDR is required to be compliant with: the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
- The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) sets out ground rules for how private sector organizations may collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of commercial activities.
- Three provinces also have additional privacy laws. Currently, British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec have provincial privacy laws.
- The Office of the Privacy Commissioner oversees matters related to PIPEDA.
