EDMONTON – A legislative committee is looking for feedback from Albertans as it reviews the Personal Information Protection Act.

The act is meant to protect the personal information of customers, clients and employees held by private-sector organizations.

The review will determine whether any amendments are needed at this time.

Ricardo Miranda, committee chair and MLA for Calgary Cross, says input from the public is key and he urges all Albertans to participate in this process and let the committee know what they think.

Written submissions from all Albertans are welcome and the deadline is Feb. 26.

The committee has also begun to solicit feedback from stakeholder organizations and has sought preliminary information from experts such as Alberta’s Information and Privacy Commissioner.
