The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) has issued a call for proposals under its 2017-18 Contributions Program, which funds independent privacy research and related knowledge translation initiatives.
The Office invites proposals for projects that advance its strategic privacy priorities:
- Economics of personal information;
- Government surveillance;
- Reputation and privacy; and
- The body as information.
In addition, the OPC is particularly interested in proposals aimed at developing Privacy Codes of Practice. Specifically, the Office is inviting proposals by not-for-profit industry, trade or professional associations, academics, civil society groups, and/or consumer advocacy groups to develop privacy codes of practice that will:
- Enhance organizational accountability,
- Promote regulatory compliance through greater certainty and predictability, and
- Augment information to individuals beyond privacy policies, helping to promote transparency and openness with respect to how privacy obligations are met and addressed.
