Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce

The Government of Canada enacted the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) which came into effect for most businesses on January 1, 2004. PIPEDA regulates the collection, use and disclosure of personal information by private sector organizations and others in the course of their commercial activities. Organizations, including corporations, individuals, associations, partnerships and trade unions, are generally subject to the provisions of this legislation if they collect, use or disclose personal information in the course of their commercial activities. Under PIPEDA, personal information must be:

  • Collected for identifiable purposes and with consent;
  • Used and disclosed for the limited purpose for which it was collected;
  • Accurate;
  • Accessible for inspection and correction; and
  • Safeguarded.
