New Brunswick has specific privacy legislation for organizations operating in the public sector, but unlike British Columbia, Alberta, and Quebec, has no specific privacy legislation for organizations operating in the private sector. Instead, the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) applies to the private sector.
Public Sector Legislation
New Brunswick’s public sector privacy legislation is the Right to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (RTIPPA) and the Personal Health Information Privacy and Access Act.
