Welcome to the new OIPC blog
I'm pleased to welcome you to the OIPC Privacy and Access blog.
Data today knows no borders – and technology is accelerating in ways we could not have imagined five or ten years ago. Some say privacy is inconsistent with our modern world. I disagree. But given the reach and power of our digital society, I believe that it’s absolutely essential to take a proactive approach to our information rights. These rights are guaranteed for British Columbians under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and the Personal Information Protection Act.
With our new blog, we hope to demystify, inform and share our work with you. We’ve created a space for in-depth commentary, the latest news about access and information, surprising facts about privacy and access in British Columbia, interesting quotes, tips about how to better protect your personal data and much more. We hope you’ll join the conversation.
