Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector

A Québéquois privacy law that, other than different terminology, is similar to PIPEDA, though at a province level. It came into force in 1994 and espouses three principles: (1) Every person who establishes a file on another person must have a serious and legitimate reason for doing so; (2) The person establishing the file may not deny the individual concerned access to the information contained in the file; (3) The person must also respect certain rules that are applicable to the collection, storage, use and communication of this information.
