PIPEDA privacy law given business friendly interpretation by Supreme Court: RBC v TrangPIPEDA privacy law given business friendly interpretation by Supreme Court: RBC v Trang



Canada’s federal privacy law, PIPEDA, was enacted to be one of our framework laws that would underpin our digital economy. It’s goal was to recognize the privacy rights of individuals and at the same time to recognize the legitimate needs of organizations to collect, use, and disclose personal information.

Trang 2016 SCC 50.
