Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner Tables 2023-2024 Annual Report

June 20, 2024 - Julie Ursu, Manager of Communication

Commissioner Ronald J. Kruzeniski, K.C., has tabled his office’s 2023-2024 Annual Report with the Legislative Assembly. It is with great significance that the theme of his final Annual Report is titled Change, for a number of reasons including that this will be his last one.

In this Annual Report, Commissioner Kruzeniski has reflected back on the changes and progress his office has made in the last 10 years. Included in the list of achievements is the issuing of over 1100 reports, creating the Guide to FOIP and Guide to LA FOIP, developing the Rules of Procedure and maintaining a website that hosts all the resources our office has developed over the years. He indicated that “all of this will assist those dealing with my office to know what to expect.”

For years, Commissioner Kruzeniski has been saying that we are shifting from a paper society to a digital one, which requires our legislation to be modernized. This need is even more important now with the advancements of artificial intelligence (AI) in which the Commissioner notes, “there is a need to ensure our legislation recognizes the benefits of AI functionality but protects us from the risks of inappropriate use or abuse of the technology.”

It is his hope that the proposals for legislative change outlined in this year’s Annual Report will be adopted in the years ahead to assist with the modernization of access and privacy legislation in Saskatchewan.
