The Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) is seeking feedback to address the gaps in Ontario’s legislative privacy framework, and to establish comprehensive, up-to-date rules that will protect privacy rights, increase confidence in digital services and support innovation.

To support this consultation, MGCS has released a white paper that outlines proposals to strengthen privacy protections across the province. The proposals in the paper are organized by the following themes:

  • Rights-based approach to privacy;
  • Safe use of automated decision making;
  • Thoughtful consent and lawful uses of personal data;
  • Data transparency for Ontarians;
  • Protecting children and youth;
  • A fair, proportionate and supportive regulatory regime; and
  • Support for Ontario business and innovators.
MGCS is accepting feedback from organizations, impacted stakeholders and the general public until August 3, 2021. AMCTO will be reviewing the proposals for impacts to our membership.
