Saskatchewan Introduces New Law on Data-matching  

Last week, the office of Saskatchewan’s Information and Privacy Commissioner announced the introduction of a new data-matching law that allows the sharing of personal information data while preserving individual privacy rights.

Commissioner Ron Kruzeniski said that the proposed legislation should clarify the steps required of a Ministry that wishes to enter a data-matching agreement.

In the release, Kruzeniski stressed the need for government organizations to do a privacy impact assessment prior to entering the agreement. He also revealed that a new position of government access co-ordinator will be responsible for ensuring the province’s compliance with the new law.
