Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner’s Proposal on Data Matching

November 9, 2017

First reading has been given to The Data Matching Agreements Act.  Kruzeniski stated:

In the spring of this year, I released proposals for Data Matching legislation.  I am pleased that the Legislative Assembly is now considering such legislation.

And he further stated:

The proposed legislation clarifies the steps that a Ministry must take in order to perform data matching.  It is my intent to require organizations to follow the Act.

And he finally stated:

It will be absolutely necessary that government organizations do a privacy impact assessment before they embark upon a data matching project.  Such an assessment is needed so that privacy protection of personal information is maintained.
