PIPEDA for Law Firms

In November and December, I gave a few presentations in Halifax, Truro and Sydney for the Nova Scotia Barristers Society continuing professional development department. The first was on advising clients about PIPEDA and the second was specifically focused to what lawyers need to think about to get their own houses in order. In the last month or so, I've been bombarded with phone calls from lawyers who have received letters from clients asking about privacy and aren't sure what to do or say. Many see their law firms as any other supplier and are asking for assurances that we are up to par. I've also had a couple of calls from people who weren't able to make any of the presentations for a copy of my powerpoint. So, for them and for anyone else who might be interested, here is a link to the online-viewable version of PIPEDA for Law Firms and a PDF version. I'm not going to post a native PowerPoint version online since I've seen too much of my stuff cut and pasted in other places. If you want a copy of it for a presentation you are going to give, drop me a line at david.fraser (a)
