The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act
PIPEDA sets out the ground rules for how private-sector organizations collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of commercial activities across Canada.
In addition, PIPEDA will not apply to an organization that operates wholly within a province that has legislation that has been deemed substantially similar to the PIPEDA, unless the personal information crosses provincial or national borders. Alberta has privacy legislation that has been deemed substantially similar.
PIPEDA applies to private-sector organizations carrying on business in Canada in the provinces or territories of Manitoba, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, or Yukon and private-sector organizations carrying on business in Canada when the personal information they collect, use or disclose crosses provincial or national borders.
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada oversees compliance with PIPEDA.
Alberta Personal Information Protection Act
PIPA governs the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by organizations in a manner that recognizes both the right of an individual to their personal information protected and the need of organizations to collect, use or disclose personal information for purposes that are reasonable.
The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Alberta oversees compliance with PIPA.
