"Strengthening privacy legislation was a priority for governments across Canada in 2020 and organizations must keep an eye on the continued evolution in 2021. In particular, new or amended private-sector privacy legislation has been proposed at both the federal and provincial level. One longstanding criticism of Canadian privacy legislation is the lack of enforcement powers for the regulators. Ontario’s potential private-sector legislation, Quebec’s Bill 64 and the federal Bill C-11 all include stronger enforcement regimes, including the introduction of monetary penalties and the ability for commissioners to make orders."
