Kris Klein, CIPP/C, CIPM

Ottawa native Kris Klein has more than a decade of experience in the federal regulatory arena, which he gained in both the public and private sectors in Canada. He is also one of the country’s leading experts on the application of the Access to Information Act, the Privacy Act and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA).

More recently and prior to founding nNovation LLP, Klein practiced exclusively in the area of privacy law for the privacy commissioner of Canada. In his capacity as litigation counsel, Klein advised the commissioner and senior officials on legal, policy and strategic positions available in privacy matters, including the handling of high-profile and sensitive cases. In addition, he interacted, negotiated and settled complaints with private-sector organizations facing complaints about privacy issues. Klein also represented the commissioner and her office publicly as a conference speaker before parliamentary committee and in interviews with the media.
