British Columbia's Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) came into effect on January 1, 2004. PIPA applies to private sector entities in British Columbia, including persons, unincorporated associations, trade unions, and trust or non-profit organizations that collect, use, or disclose personal information.

The purpose of PIPA is to govern the collection, use, or disclosure of personal information by organizations for ‘reasonable’ purposes in a manner that protects the rights of data subjects. PIPA gives individuals the right to access any personal information collected on them by an organization and request corrections to this collected information in case of any error or omission.

British Columbia’s PIPA places varied obligations on organizations handling individuals' personal data, including ensuring purpose limitation and data minimization, notifying data subjects before collection of data regarding the purposes of collection and the contact details of the controller’s representative, ensuring accuracy and security of personal information, and developing privacy policies and a complaint redressal mechanism.

Facts About British Columbia's Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA)

Here are some essential facts about British Columbia's PIPA:


The Information and Privacy Commissioner appointed under the British Columbia Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is primarily responsible for monitoring the administration of the PIPA to ensure its purposes are achieved;


The Commissioner reserves the power to authorize an organization to disregard a data subject request if it would unreasonably interfere with the operations of the organization or is deemed "frivolous or vexatious";


In case an organization refuses an individual access to their personal information, or to provide information regarding the use or disclosure of their personal information, the burden of proof lies upon the organization to justify their decision to the Commissioner's satisfaction;


If found in breach of the PIPA, an individual may face a fine of up to CAD10,000, while an organization may face a fine of up to CAD 100,000;


A special committee of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia is required to meet every six years to review and recommend necessary amendments to the PIPA.
