CANADA—Court rules on mortgage disclosure in Royal Bank v. Trang

There are many circumstances in which organizations are requested or required to disclose personal information (PI) of their customers to others. Consent is usually required for such disclosures; however, privacy law generally makes allowance for disclosures without consent in clearly spelled-out circumstances; e.g., for the purpose of collecting a debt owed by the individual to the organization or when required to comply with a subpoena or warrant issued or an order made by a court.
