The Privacy and Access Council of Canada (PACC) is proud to present the National Privacy and Data Governance Congress that brings together professionals from industry, government and academia who are — or ought to be — concerned about privacy, access, security, compliance and data governance within their organizations.
Sessions are longer than usual, so that there is plenty of time for delegates to pose questions, get unscripted answers, and engage in meaningful conversations with presenters, colleagues, and decision makers. For that to be possible, attendance is strictly limited and registration is on a first come, first served basis.
The PACC is a membership association and credentialing body for anyone in the field of information access and privacy regardless of their career progression.

Sharon Polsky is the president of AMINA Corp. and a Privacy by Design Ambassador with more than 30 years’ experience advising corporations, governments and organizations about privacy and access implications and unintended consequences of emerging laws, technologies and global trends. She is also president of the Privacy and Access Council of Canada, the nonpartisan national non-profit association of privacy and access professionals in Canada’s private and public sectors.
In 2007, Sharon founded The Winston Report, the foremost quarterly journal devoted to information access, privacy protection and data governance in Canada, and serves as its Editor-in-Chief.
Sharon is passionate about the importance of effective data protection and information risk management, and has extensive knowledge and demonstrated ability for researching, analyzing, interpreting and applying Canada’s privacy and access legislation, and for assessing relevant business and technical issues.
Ms. Polsky is frequently invited to write and speak about data governance and information security, and is a frequent speaker and lecturer in the areas of data privacy, information security, cyberliability, and the privacy implications of emerging laws and technologies, and her insights are frequently sought by conference organizers and by media including CTV, CBC, CPAC, the National Post, Montreal Gazette, Toronto Star, Calgary Herald, Edmonton Journal, Edmonton Sun, Calgary Sun, iPolitics, Blacklock’s Reporter, Corus Entertainment, Times of London and professional journals including Canadian HR Reporter.
Join speakers, delegates and thought leaders with shared interests in privacy, access and security. Colleagues from public and private institutions, federal, provincial and territorial governments, industry, academia and regulatory authorities will meet in a relaxed setting to enjoy workshop, breakout, keynote and plenary sessions.
Congress 2017 takes a refreshingly practical approach. Breakout sessions are longer than at most conferences, but formal presentations are shorter. Speakers offer practical examples and case studies, but are discouraged from using PowerPoint or similar tools (or distractions).
The Congress has been approved for Continuing Professional Development credits applicable by the Law Society of Saskatchewan and the PACC Certification Board, and may qualify for CPD credits from other organizations as well.
