Lawyers for Privacy Law and Protection of Personal Information

Canadian privacy, access to information and personal information protection legislation exists at both the federal and provincial levels, and the laws change frequently to adapt to new technologies and shifting political priorities. It is essential that business owners remain informed of their compliance obligations in the face of ever-evolving requirements. At Mills & Mills LLP, we keep our clients up-to-date on changes to the law and their legal obligations as commercial entities. Our lawyers also assist with compliance by drafting customized privacy and anti-spam policies.

We represent clients in dealings with government agencies such as the Ontario Privacy Commissioner, in proceedings under access to information laws, and by responding to privacy inquiries or complaints.
