PIPEDA AND IDENTITY THEFT:
SOLUTIONS FOR PROTECTING CANADIANS

Identity theft is the fastest growing and most serious non-violent crime in North America. As private sector organizations increase the scope of the personal data they collect from Canadians, and as technology increases the ease by which this data is circulated and exchanged, Canadians are at a greater risk of having their identities stolen than ever before.

This report from FIPA analyzes the intersection between identity theft, technology, and current private sector information management practices. It details how identity thieves use the latest technology, as well as "low tech" means, to take advantage of private sector practices to perpetrate their crime. It suggests how Canada's Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act may be implemented so as to improve the Act's effectiveness in dealing with identity theft.

First submitted in April 2005 and revised in April 2006, this FIPA report was funded by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, under its Contributions program launched in 2004.
