What is Canada PIPEDA?
The Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) is a federal privacy law that governs how private-sector firms handle personal information in the course of business. The goal of PIPEDA is to balance individuals’ privacy rights with organizations’ legitimate needs to gather, utilize, and disclose personal information for justifiable purposes. With the exception of Quebec, Alberta, and British Columbia, which have their own private sector privacy rules that are largely identical to PIPEDA, PIPEDA applies to all private-sector entities that collect, use, or disclose personal information during commercial activities.
Is my company subject to the Canada PIPEDA? 
The scope of PIPEDA clearly outlines who is covered, and you can ask yourself a few questions to determine whether you need to comply.
Are you in the private sector?
Do you collect, utilize, or disclose personally identifiable information?
Is that for for-profit or commercial activities in Canada?
If you responded yes to allof the following, you are subject to PIPEDA and must comply with its provisions.
What are the
penalties for non-compliance 

There are two sorts of sanctions for noncompliance

Financial penalties: Under the 2018 PIPEDA changes, fines for knowingly breaking security may be applied. Each violation can result in a fine of up to $100,000 CAD.

Adverse publicity: Has an impact on businesses that do not have proper precautions. This erodes customer trust, which may have an influence on a company’s business goals.
