We must remain Ever Vigilant in preserving our privacy and promoting access: Commissioner Cavoukian

Summary  TORONTO – Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Dr. Ann Cavoukian, has proclaimed “Ever Vigilant,” as the theme for her just released 2011 Annual Report. This follows in the footsteps of her efforts, which began early last year, to raise awareness about grave privacy concerns over federal “lawful access” legislation.

The report shows that 2011 was another very active year for the protection of privacy and access to information. New records were set for the number of freedom of information requests filed, appeals submitted, and privacy complaints made under the three Acts (FIPPA, MFIPPA and PHIPA) which fall under the Commissioner’s jurisdiction.

Also making great strides last year were the Commissioner’s made-in-Ontario solutions of Privacy by Design and Access by Design, which call for embedding default privacy and access within processes and technologies, right from the outset.
