Dear M. Therrien:
Thank you for the opportunity to provide input into the consultation on whether consent is or should be required for transborder data flows for processing.
By way of introduction, I am a senior technology lawyer with McCarthy Tétrault. I have significant experience in outsourcings of all types, both domestic and trans-national. I have been involved in some of Canada largest and most complex outsourcing transactions. In this connection, and as part of my privacy practice, I regularly advise clients on privacy issues associated with transfers and disclosures of personal information.
