The Law of Privacy in Canada
Availability: Temporarily out of stock
This work is a comprehensive and thorough treatment of the regulation of the collection and use of personal information in Canada. It is the only publication that includes everything lawyers and business professionals need to know about privacy from privacy protection to tackling issues such as public surveillance to the Personal Information Protection and Electronics Documents Act (PIPEDA). While the work focuses primarily on the domestic regulatory scene, the factors that have made privacy such a salient topic have also mandated the inclusion of similar developments in the regulation of the collection and use of personal information in the European Union and, with Canada's major trading partner, the United States. Important areas of coverage include Technology and Privacy: Challenges and Solutions; Privacy Protection Under the Criminal Law; Privacy Protection in the Civil Context; Workplace Privacy; Health Privacy; Public Sector Regulation; Private Sector Regulation; and International Privacy Issues.
