The Canadian Research Insights Council (CRIC) with guidance from CRIC’s AI and Data Analytics Thought Leadership Council is preparing a response for the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) on its Consultation on Artificial Intelligence. The OPC is seeking input on proposed recommendations to the Government of Canada on changes to PIPEDA in areas where it currently falls short on AI systems. The recommendations aim to bolster privacy protection and achieve responsible innovation in a digital era involving AI systems.
CRIC’s response will reflect our industry’s strong support for the highest standards for the protection and responsible use of personal information and data. It will also focus on our commitment to the responsible use of data in ways that ensures no harm or negative consequences come to data subjects as a result of their use in research. As we prepare our response, we would also welcome feedback from the industry.
