If you follow the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia on twitter (@BCInfoPrivacy), then you will have noticed a series of posts about Privacy Awareness Week. Privacy Awareness Week is an initiative commenced in 2006 by the Asia Pacific Privacy Authorities forum, of which British Columbia is a member, and is held annually to promote the awareness of privacy issues.

This week (May 15 to May 21), the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner is undertaking various activities for individuals and businesses in celebration of Privacy Awareness Week, including:

  • Releasing the results of a recent Privacy Awareness Survey;
  • Sharing privacy tips; and
  • Hosting a one-hour Twitter chat with Assistant Commissioner Jay Fedorak on Thursday, May 18 at 2:00 pm (PST).
