Understanding the Impact of British Columbia's Proposed Public Sector Privacy Law Data Residency Requirements
The Government of B.C. has tabled a bill proposing material amendments to its public sector privacy and access legislation, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 165 ("FOIPPA"), Bill 22 – 2021: Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Amendment Act, 2021, including a rewrite of FOIPPA’s data-residency provisions and mandatory privacy-breach reporting.
