As part of the 2006 legislative amendments to the PCMLTFA, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPC) assumed oversight responsibility with respect to the measures FINTRAC employs to protect the information under its control. The Privacy Commissioner is obliged to conduct a review every two years and report the results of the reviews to Parliament. The first of these reviews was tabled in November 2009.
The report recognized FINTRAC's good work in protecting its information holdings as well as the Centre's strong physical and IT security infrastructures. In order to further strengthen its compliance with the Code of Fair Information Practices and following the audit, FINTRAC has been working on exploring solutions to address the recommendations from the OPC.
In addition, FINTRAC has taken steps to strengthen its privacy management structure, and a member of its Executive Committee has been appointed Chief Privacy Officer. The Chief Privacy Officer's role is to provide strategic privacy leadership, and to coordinate and oversee privacy related activities for the Centre.
