Where does Canada stand on privacy?

Canada, like many countries, must answer a fundamental question: How does it achieve its law enforcement and national security objectives while also protecting and respecting the privacy rights of its citizens? “We hope the current administration and its privacy opponents can reach reasonable compromises that allow both groups to achieve their desired outcomes” Chris Stevens, CIPP/US, CIPP/C, CIPP/E, CIPP/G, CIPM, CIPT, and Steve Holland, CIPM, write.
