There ought to be a law : protecting children's online privacy in the 21st century : a discussion paper for Canadians by Working Group of Canadian Privacy Commissioners and Child and Youth Advocates( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Working Group was formed in the late fall of 2008 and early part of 2009 as a follow up to Professor Valerie Steeves' presentations in Regina and Ottawa to annual meetings of Commissioners and Advocates. Advocates' offices from Nova Scotia, Alberta and BC have taken part, as have Commissioners' offices in Saskatchewan, Ottawa, Quebec and Newfoundland. The New Brunswick Office of the Ombudsman and Child and Youth Advocate, which is common to both forums, has chaired the Working Group. A number of leading researchers in the area of children's online privacy have participated and assisted the Working Group's deliberations. Following a few conference calls early in 2009, sharing of best practices legislatively and devising a plan of action, the Working Group met for a two day seminar in Fredericton, New Brunswick. This paper summarizes and outlines some of the legislative provisions discussed during the seminar, as options for further study and law reform."--Document
