Resource materials for Alberta’s Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) are currently under development. As materials are released, they will be posted on this page.

In addition to the materials available through the OIPC, the Policy and Governance Branch of Service Alberta has developed resources for PIPA which are available through this link.

While there are some differences between the British Columbia and Alberta private sector privacy legislations, it may be useful to consider some of the resources BC’s Ministry of Labour, Citizens's Services and Open Government has developed for their legislation.

Alberta's PIPA is similar enough to BC's PIPA that the resources from the BC Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner will be helpful, but remember the two laws do have differences.

Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of British Columbia

Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. The federal Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) has some similarities to Alberta's PIPA. Resources from the OPCC will be of some assistance, but remember that the Alberta and federal laws have greater differences than the Alberta and BC laws.

Privacy Commissioner of Canada

Memorandum of Understanding between The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Alberta, and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of British Columbia, with respect to cooperation and collaboration in private sector privacy policy, enforcement, and public education.
