Thanks to John Gregory for passing this along ...
Bill 152 has now passed in the Ontario Legislature and is heading for royal assent. This Bill contains a number of amendments to a range of statutes, but most interestingly provides for the creation of regulations for notifications if information is disclosed contrary to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (and its equivalent that applies to municipalities):
9. Subsection 60 (1) of the Act is amended by adding the following clauses:(b.1) requiring the head of an institution to assist persons with disabilities in making requests for access under subsection 24 (1) or 48 (1);
. . . . .
(d.1) providing for procedures to be followed by an institution if personal information is disclosed in contravention of this Act;
. . . . .
(f.1) respecting the disposal of personal information under subsection 40 (4), including providing for different procedures for the disposal of personal information based on the sensitivity of the personal information;
It'll be interesting to see what the regs look like.
