About the webinar:

The privacy law world is abuzz these days with the recent adoption of Bill 64, which overhauls Québec's private sector privacy law, and contains many onerous provisions reminiscent of the EU's GDPR. 

If you're an in-house lawyer you may be wondering what you need to consider operationally to ensure your organization is ready for the new law as it comes into force over the next three years.

Well, you've come to the right place! 

On November 18th, 2021, Counselwell hosted a substantive 1-hour workshop delivered via live webinar. We were joined by privacy lawyers Julie Himo (Torys LLP, Québec) and Molly Reynolds (Torys LLP, Toronto), who explained the impact of the revised private sector privacy law in Québec for in-house counsel and their organizations, and how they compare to existing and proposed privacy laws across Canada.

We addressed new breach reporting rules, administrative monetary penalties, data portability rules, and much more.

This webinar is intended for in-house counsel who advise organizations that will be affected by Bill 64, including organizations who operate in Québec, have employees residing in Québec, or have clients in Québec

The recording of the webinar is eligible for 1 hour of CPD. Additional CPD information can be found below.
