The Act Respecting the Protection of Personal Information in the Private Sector forms the backbone of privacy law in Quebec and the concepts it includes have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the province. Specific articles in the Civil Code of Québec (art. 37 to 40) apply to the creation and maintenance of a client’s’ file and bind those who collect or use consumer data. The federal government has, for its part, put into place the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) which may at times apply should the provincial law not cover a given scenario. Understanding the laws and how they should be implemented is critical for those who wish to protect personal information.
