Canadian federal political parties and personal privacy protection : a comparative analysis / prepared by Colin J. Bennett, Robin M. Bayley.: IP54-76/2012E-PDF

This paper presents a comparative overview of the ways that federal Canadian political parties collect, process and disseminate personal information. While the privacy protection laws in most other democratic countries generally regulate political parties, Canada’s do not. Several privacy-related incidents associated with the Canadian party system have been covered in the media over the last decade or so, some of which have come to the attention of the Office of the Privacy Commissioner.
