Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner’s Proposal on Data Matching
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.
