PACC provides opportunities for members to share their insights and perspectives.
PACC takes an active role in representing members’ views about legislation, technology, and public policy issues that can affect privacy, access, and data protection rights, responsibilities, and practice.
PACC provides opportunities for members and others to share their insights and perspectives through a variety of information-sharing vehicles.
PACC members have testified before Senate and Parliamentary Standing Committees; been invited to participate in public policy forums, and to provide insights and recommendations regarding proposed legislation; prepared submissions to municipal, provincial, and federal governments; drafted white papers and comment letters; delivered conference presentations; and organized or collaborated with other groups to inform legislation and public policy.
Let Your Voice Be Heard
Public Consultations. PACC recognizes that employment or other associations can limit individuals’ freedom to express their views about issues of importance to the privacy, access and data protection community — so PACC is the voice that gives members and others a way to be heard. Aggregated and anonymized results ensure participant anonymity.
Blog and Publications. PACC’s blog and publications are important outlets to explore topics and issues relevant to access-to-information, privacy, data governance, and data protection. We welcome thoughtful, thought-provoking, and diverse perspectives for the two primary communication vehicles: the PACC Blog and The Winston Report.
Interested in leading an online seminar?
We accept applications from speakers on an ongoing basis.
