White-Joncas, CIPP/C, CIPM, CIAPP-P
Pierce is part of the vanguard of privacy professionals. As Manager, Privacy & Access to Information at Carleton University, Pierce ensures good privacy governance, compliance with provincial, federal and international privacy legislation, and processes formal requests for information.
Before joining Carleton University in March 2018, Pierce held various privacy-related roles within various Government of Canada organizations. He is fluent in privacy governance, impact assessments, regulatory compliance, auditing, access to information operations, anti-spam compliance, and Canada’s official languages.
Pierce holds the Certified Information Privacy Professional/Canada (CIPP/C) and Certified Information Privacy Manager (CIPM) certifications and is an active member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). Pierce also holds the Canadian Institute of Access and Privacy Professionals-Professional (CIAPP-P) certification and is a member of the Canadian Access and Privacy Association (CAPA).
As a way to give back to the privacy community that has supported him, Pierce volunteers as the Vice-Chair, Technical Committee 9: Privacy and participates as a member with Technical Committee 1: Data Governance with the CIO Strategy Council. Previously, Pierce served as a KnowledgeNet Co-Chair and Young Privacy Professional Leader for the Ottawa IAPP Chapter, where he organized networking events to foster continual learning in the evolving privacy world. He also takes on pro bono cases for people that hit a wall trying to access their information, from private and public organizations alike.
When not championing privacy protection, Pierce can be found chasing two things: putting perfection on the other set of links, or Stewie, his miniature poodle.
