Updates to Canadian federal privacy law tabled in the Senate

As expected, the government has tabled amendments to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act, but this time in the Senate as Senate Government Bill - S-4.

The highlights are breach notification and an exception to the consent rule for business transactions. I'll have more to say once I've given it a thorough going-over. Watch this space.

The Bill is sometimes hard to follow with the amendments out of place and out of context. So, for your handy reference, here is a redline of PIPEDA with the first reading amendments from Bill S-4 in place.
