Children’s digital rights, data sharing for the public good, and government access to personal data were in the spotlight at the 43rd Global Privacy Assembly.
The IPC co-sponsored resolutions on each of these topics, working with data protection and privacy authorities from around the world to bring them to the global stage.
The resolutions were adopted by the international membership at this year’s assembly, which took place virtually from October 18-21, 2021.
- Resolution on Children’s Digital Rights
- Resolution on Data Sharing for the Public Good
- Resolution on Government Access to Data, Privacy and the Rule of Law: Principles for Governmental Access to Personal Data held by the Private Sector for National Security and Public Safety Purposes
The Global Privacy Assembly is the premier global forum for data protection and privacy authorities from more than 130 countries, providing international leadership on data protection and privacy efforts.
Through its work with the assembly, the IPC supports the development of comprehensive and harmonized approaches to data protection and privacy issues on a global scale that informs and supports the office’s work here in Ontario in light of international trends.
