The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) physical office space will be closed, being a non-essential business, for the duration of the Ontario order requiring only essential workplaces be operating.

We continue to make regulatory submissions, to hold government decisions up to public scrutiny and to advocate for consumer rights during this period. We are available to all media via video. PIAC will emphasize actions and information relevant to consumers as they attempt to fairly and reliably get access to essential services such as telecommunications (Internet, wireless and phone) and broadcasting; air travel protection and redress; privacy; retail banking including mortgages; and competition and general consumer law in a time of uncertainty and scarcity.

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 intersection of privacy and communications and we greatly anticipate his remarks, which we have no doubt will be of interest and value to our attendees.
