The Yukon Information and Privacy Commissioner, Diane McLeod-McKay, participated in a two-day design workshop exploring solutions to data privacy and meaningful consent in a connected society. The session was held on March 5 and 6 at the University of Ottawa and was co-hosted by the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Privacy Association (BC FIPA), the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, and the Vancouver Design Nerds Society. The event brought together representatives from academia, civil society, government and industry. The goal was to re-imagine new models for consent to mitigate the negative impacts that smart technologies have on privacy. A summary report of the event can be viewed here.
