Compliance in Ontario

What Kinds of Compliance Regulations might your business fall under?

Ontario, Canada businesses are subject to various data compliance laws and regulations. Some are global, some are federal, and some are province specific.

Some data compliance mandates include:

  • Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA): PIPEDA is a federal privacy law that applies to private-sector organizations engaged in commercial activities. It governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information.

  • Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA): FIPPA applies to public-sector organizations in Ontario, including government agencies, municipalities, and other public bodies. It regulates the collection and protection of personal information held by these organizations.

  • Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA): PHIPA applies to the health sector in Ontario and governs the collection, use, and disclosure of personal health information. It is particularly relevant to healthcare providers, insurers, and other organizations handling health data.

  • Canada's Anti-Spam Legislation (CASL): CASL regulates the sending of commercial electronic messages, including emails and text messages. It also covers the installation of computer programs on others' devices.

  • Ontario's Consumer Protection Act (CPA): While not specifically a data protection law, the CPA includes provisions related to the protection of consumer personal information in commercial transactions.
  • Digital Privacy Act (Bill C-26): This is an amendment to PIPEDA that introduced additional requirements for the reporting of data breaches and enhanced consent provisions. This bill is still in consideration.

  • Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA): For not-for-profit organizations in Ontario, compliance with this act is essential. It includes provisions related to the handling of personal information.

  • Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS): If your business processes credit card transactions, compliance with PCI DSS is crucial. It sets security standards to protect cardholder data and ensure secure payment card transactions.
  • Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standards: These standards, established by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, focus on securing critical infrastructure sectors such as energy, communications, and transportation.

  • Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA): CISA encourages the sharing of cybersecurity threat information between private entities and the government to enhance overall cybersecurity.

  • Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre (CCIRC): CCIRC provides guidance and resources to help organizations in Canada prevent, detect, and respond to cybersecurity threats.

  • Digital Service Standard for the Ontario Public Service: If your business interacts with the Ontario government or provides digital services to the public sector, compliance with the Digital Service Standard may be required.
