Bill 64: An Act to modernize Quebec’s privacy legislation to protect personal information

As public concerns surrounding data privacy grow, political bodies worldwide are creating new laws to protect individual rights and personal information. Most notable laws include the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in the European Union, the Consumer Privacy Act in California, and the proposed Bill 64 in Quebec.

In 2020, the Quebec government introduced Bill 64 to modernize the province’s privacy legislation. This will apply to public bodies and private enterprises established in Quebec as well as any business that has a digital presence in Quebec.

Bill 64 addresses concerns surrounding data privacy, from large-scale security breaches to individual rights to personal data collected and stored by businesses. It proposes new requirements that apply to all businesses in every industry if they have a digital presence in Quebec. Businesses failing to comply with these proposed requirements could face substantial fines – not to mention run the risk of irreparable damage to their reputation if caught not complying with this tabled legislation.

How can you ensure your business complies so you can avoid fines?

We’ve compiled a list of resources to help you gain a clear understanding of Quebec’s Bill 64 and its impact on your business. Interested in learning more about Richter’s Bill 64 approach? Let’s connect.
