As governments around the world struggled to keep up with an ever-advancing digital world, the need to address individual privacy as it relates to the collection of personal information and the use of artificial intelligence became evident. The Canadian government introduced Bill C-27 as its second attempt to replace the outdated PIPEDA and provide regulatory oversight to protect individual privacy rights. As organizations update their policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the new legislation, some areas will prove more challenging than others. In this discussion, the panelists will consider the impact of Bill C-27 on innovation, the potential challenges organizations may face and how to prepare from a best practice and tooling perspective.

Investors are increasingly incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment decision-making process. It is worth noting that data has become an in-demand commodity in order to facilitate this decision making. The top Canadian pension funds are banding together and are pushing Canadian Corporates towards more standardized disclosures and more robust and complete reporting. We have seen the introduction of some new reporting frameworks and the enhancement of existing frameworks but reporting to this point has been voluntary and unaudited. A lack of consistent, comprehensive, and reliable reporting standards inhibits actionable informed investment decisions.
In this session Matthew Ayearst from CGI discusses this important topic with Andrea Carlson, IGM Financial, Julie Park, TMX, Laurie Clark, Onyen and Gordon Beal, Chartered Professional Accountants, Canada
