Bookmark and Share

NAID-CANADA received some very good news this week. Dr. Ann Cavoukian, Ontario’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, has agreed to deliver the Keynote Address at the 1st Annual NAID-CANADA Conference. NAID-CANADA is also pleased to report that Detective Staff Sergeant Charles Cox, Leader of the Anti-Rackets Section of the Ontario Provincial Police’s Consumer Fraud Team, will also be speaking. Detective Cox is an expert on identify theft and organized the first World Identity Theft Conference in 2003. The Honorable Jim Watson, Minister of Consumer and Business Affairs for the Government of Ontario, has also accepted a speaking invitation.

As announced in the last edition of NAIDDirect™, NAID-CANADA will be holding its first annual conference on February 17-18, 2005, in Toronto. Unlike NAID Conferences to date, the NAID-CANADA Conference, titled "FOCUS CANADA: Understanding Current Privacy Policy," is reaching out to the entire marketplace, hoping to attract potential clients interested in evolving privacy policy issues in Canada. Included in the group that NAID-CANADA is hoping to attract are professionals involved in human resources, medical facilities administration, records management and financial administration. Policymakers and other government officials are also being encouraged to attend.

The addition of these three speakers ensures the interest of the professionals NAID-CANADA is seeking to attract and, therefore, the success of this event. Based on the response to this type of event, NAID and NAID-CANADA will consider hosting other events that are focused on the consumer as well as the service provider.

More detailed information on FOCUS CANADA and registration forms will be posted on the NAID- CANADA website in the coming days: Membership is not required to attend the conference.
