In October, the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s office announced it “has prepared a draft guidance documentÂ that sets out good practice rules for private sector organizations that are either contemplating or using covert video surveillance.” The Commissioner asked for public comment on the draft guidance, which sets out a test to determine whether an organization may use covert video surveillance. See my original post. The deadline for public comment is tomorrow, November 14.
Any questions about the draft guidelines or comments process can be sent via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments on the guidance document may be sent by postal mail to:
