The Office of the Privacy Commissioner (OPC) is inviting research and knowledge translation applications that advance its strategic privacy priorities. In addition, the OPC is particularly interested in funding research or knowledge translation projects that aim to promote the development and adoption of Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs). These technologies allow online users to protect their private information by letting them decide what data they are willing to share with third parties and under which circumstances.
