Fillmore Riley presents ‘Privacy Law: What You Don’t Know Could Hurt You’

Fillmore Riley LLP is proud to host a Manitoba Bar Association (MBA) Corporate Counsel Section professional development session on privacy law. Paul K. Grower, Brynne N. Thordarson and Anthony R. Foderaro will present important highlights about the recent developments in privacy law on February 23, 2016, from noon to 1:30 p.m.

On July 1, 2014, Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”) came into force. The legislation has compelled organizations across the country to take a look a closer look at how they use technology to communicate and promote their business. To date, there have been several Administrative Monetary Penalties—the highest being $1.1 million. We will tell you what you need to know to make sure you are onside, avoiding costly fines and bad PR.

We will also discuss recent amendments to Canada’s private-sector privacy legislation. On June 18, 2015, Canada’s Digital Privacy Act came into force, implementing amendments to the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). We will provide an overview of some key changes that will affect the way your organization does business.

Attendance at this MBA Section meeting can be applied towards your Law Society of Manitoba's Continuing Professional Development (EPPM) requirement for a maximum of 1.5 hours. If you wish to learn more about this session, please click here
