We think it’s important to offer informative and engaging learning opportunities. And anyone who’s attended a previous PACC Congress can tell you that we achieve that objective — for your benefit. But don’t take our word for it. See for yourself.
Thanks for a great conference last week. This was my first time attending, and I’m already looking forward to next year. I thought the content was exceptional and the variety of participation from government and non-governmental privacy and access professionals was highly worthwhile.

I am grateful to have attended the Privacy and Access Council of Canada’s Congress in Ottawa. I learned *a lot* about privacy. Also a huge thank you to the participants and other speakers for their insightful presentations and discussions.

Thank you Ori for your presentation, very informative and given with a smile. You gave us all a lot to think about on a topic that is front and centre and will have life changing consequences.

Every moment spent preparing for my new genetic privacy and eugenics lecture at the PACC was a rewarding one, as I found the mission, your attendees, and your personal devotion to be laser-energized as we approach a wary future. What a great conference; what a great experience!

Thank you, so very much, for an excellent conference. This was so interesting (and eye-opening!). The sessions on automated vehicles and connected cars were especially mind-blowing.

Without exaggeration, it is the best conference/congress I have attended.

Interesting, new speakers — not the same folks saying the same things over and over.
Executive Director, Office of the Information & Privacy Commissioner of Ontario. Toronto ON
It was one of the most informative conferences that I have attended. The case studies on PIAs, including the one from the CSB, were great as they are part of everyday life in Government.

I very much enjoyed the diversity of topics offered in the session, and the event overall.
Senior Information and Privacy Manager — Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner. Edmonton AB
I thought your event was the best event I have been to in years. It really was a mixed bag of different approaches with the workshops, keynotes and panel discussions. I also thought it was very honest and open discussion of serious issues that we face with privacy and access. You had advocates for leveraging private information to create greater convenience for the consumer as well as privacy advocates for doing whatever you can to protect your private information.

The most beneficial aspect of the Congress was learning about privacy, an often under-represented topic in information management.
