Document Highlights

The Conference Board of Canada hosted the Canadian Privacy Summit 2017: Building Solutions for Canada’s Future on May 2–3, 2017, to further our overall national understanding of key privacy issues in Canada.

As Canadian businesses strive to compete in a global market amidst rapidly advancing technologies, they seek out opportunities to leverage personal data. At the same time, they must maintain their legal and social licences to operate by addressing data privacy issues and concerns. To proactively position Canada and its businesses for the future, governments and other privacy stakeholders are working with industries to solve current and emerging privacy issues.

Building Solutions for Canada’s Future: Summary Report of the Canadian Privacy Summer 2017 explores artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning, which are positioned to be the biggest disruptive innovations in history. Thus, it is necessary for privacy and data science to co-exist using a shared accountability approach.
