Coming soon, to a Toronto near you: the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
A few weeks ago, at the annual Canadian get-together of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (incidentially, also in the middle of the universse), the Privacy Commissioner announced the opening of an office in Toronto to deal with investigations and outreach. This was prompted by the fact that half the respondents in complaints are based in the greater Toronto area.
I should also highlight that the office is being managed by Robin Gould-Soil, former CPO of TD Bank Group. This is good news.
Here's the official word: Announcement: Privacy Commissioner of Canada establishes Toronto office - June 18, 2010
