OTTAWA – The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) today announced its Annual Dinner 2019 will be held at the magnificent National Arts Centre, Rossy Pavilion, on Thursday, 28 November 2019 from 6 p.m.  PIAC’s Annual Dinner is an Ottawa highlight for collegiality among the many stakeholders in Canada’s consumer protection, communications, privacy, air transportation, electronic commerce and competition advocates, regulators, lawyers, experts, policy analysts, journalists, academics and students.
Traditionally, PIAC attracts a high-profile speaker to inform and entertain attendees with developments in their regulatory and policy area and to explain new developments in their field and what their agency is doing to advance consumer interests in Canada.
This year is no exception, as PIAC welcomes the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, Mr. Daniel Therrien, to address the Annual Dinner. Mr. Therrien will speak on data breach regulation, privacy legislation reform and the rights-based vision for privacy law and we greatly anticipate his remarks, which we have no doubt will be of interest and value to our attendees.
PIAC’s Annual Dinner is a fundraising event. PIAC is a national non-profit and a registered charity. We provides legal and research services on behalf of consumer interests, and, in particular, vulnerable consumer interests, concerning the provision of important public services.  PIAC needs your support to represent consumers in regulatory boards, in consultations, in negotiations and in other advocacy efforts to ensure consumer interests are not only a part of the conversation, but that lower prices, better service, consumer privacy and helpful customer service are not forgotten in our high velocity and high power economy.
Please help PIAC by celebrating our Annual Dinner on November 28th!  Please see details below for how to attend.  Thank you!
