Commissioner Establishes Toronto Office
PRIVACY—CANADAJune 21, 2010
Canada's Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC) has established a Toronto office in an effort to develop a more effective presence there, according to a press release. Privacy Commissioner Jennifer Stoddart said increasing her office's regional presence was needed "in order to build stronger ties with our provincial colleagues and other stakeholders across the country." In the last two years, more than half of respondents to PIPEDA complaints have had addresses in the greater Toronto area, the commissioner said, adding that an office will help to fill a gap there. Robin Gould-Soil, CIPP/C, former chief privacy officer at TD Bank Financial Group, will direct the Toronto office.
