End of parliamentary proceedings in Quebec: An Update on Bill 64

One year after its introduction at the Québec National Assembly, Bill 64, An Act to modernize legislative provisions as regards the protection of personal information (Bill 64) has still not been adopted. With the end of the parliamentary proceedings on June 11, 2021, BLG’s Privacy and Data Protection team provides an update on this important reform of Quebec’s privacy law.

We have prepared an article which presents the key amendments made to Bill 64 during the committee process and their impact on businesses.

We also invite you to look at our amended version of the Act respecting the protection of personal information in the private sector for the specific text of the amendments. Please note that in this amended version, the text in red reflects the modifications made by Bill 64 to the Private Sector Act, while the text in blue represents the amendments adopted to Bill 64 by the Committee.
