The Annual Privacy and Access Law Symposium is the essential national conference on recent developments and trends in privacy and access law. Attendees will hear from leading experts and regulators, and have an opportunity to share their own thoughts on common access and privacy issues. This year, the focus of the conference is on how, and how successfully, our privacy and access regimes balance various competing interests, in particular as those interests evolve over time to reflect changes both technological and legal.

Germain Brière Day
Germain Brière Day consists of an annual conference regarding a current legal issue. This day was established in 2008 to honour the memory of Mr. Germain Brière, professor emeritus of the University of Ottawa’s Faculty of Civil Law, where he taught for thirty years. Professor Brière wrote several articles and books about the law of succession. He was characterized by the Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences of the Royal Society of Canada as a "major contemporary civil law specialist."
Right to Know Day
Each year on September 28, Right to Know Day is officially celebrated in over 40 nations worldwide. In Canada and in many countries around the world, celebrations have expanded into a week-long event. It is an annual celebration of an individual’s right to access information held by public bodies, and it serves to mark the benefits of a transparent, accessible government. This year, Canadians are invited from coast-to-coast to celebrate Right to Know Week from September 23 to 28.
Registration is via the University of Ottawa's Faculty of Civil Law website.
