5 years ago, I pulled together some of Canada’s top privacy experts, and we did a Reddit “As us anything” (AuA) about the Canadian privacy landscape.

I’ve spoken with our friends at Reddit, and we’re going to do another on May 1st, 2020. If you have any privacy questions related to Canada or the internet in general, get them ready!


The Team:

Kris Constable – Senior Advisor & Fractional Privacy & Security Officer – PrivaSecTech. Kris provides advice, training, and audits organizations that prioritize on the privacy of their users. Kris is also the current president of CIIPS, Canada’s information and privacy research think tank. Twitter: @cqwww

Andrew Clement is a professor emeritus in the faculty of Information, University of Toronto researching surveillance and privacy. He leads the IXmaps.ca internet surveillance mapping project and recently initiated the Snowden Surveillance Archive.

John Wunderlich is an independent privacy consultant and researcher you can follow on Twitter @PrivacyCDN or find at www.wunderlich.ca

David T.S. Fraser is a Canadian privacy lawyer who is a partner with the firm of McInnes Cooper. He has a national and international practice advising corporations and individuals on matters related to Canadian privacy laws. Twitter: @privacylawyer

Stephanie Perrin – President of Digital Discretion, started her career in 1984 in information and privacy issues, and has a long history of shaping the privacy landscape in Canada over her career.

*We hope you join us for our second @reddit_AMA on Friday May 1st at 10am PT 1pm ET here: https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/ *. You will need an account on Reddit to participate.

In the interim, check out r/privacy and newly formed r/privacylaw.

While some of our team are lawyers, nothing you read on this website, or during the iAMA constitutes legal advice, you should speak to your lawyer for that, or hire one of these ones.
