EU Privacy Law

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a regulation the European Union (EU) adopted as of May 25, 2018, to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU.

GDPR codifies data protection rules for all companies that collect data from EU citizens. It expands individuals’ control over how and when their personal data is collected and used.

Canada's adequacy status under the GDPR ensures that data processed in accordance with the GDPR can be transferred from the EU to Canada without the additional data protection safeguards that have been put in place for some other countries.
