Data Privacy in Canada

The importance of storing online data within Canada for Canadian organizations

The privacy of online data is of great importance to Canadians.

Most Canadian institutions now demand that their data be stored in Canada as a result of the implementation of the US Patriot Act. Some provinces have taken this more seriously than others but all of the provinces and territories are catching up in passing regulations with this regard. British Columbia (BC) is considered one of the leaders in the online privacy space. As a result of all the data privacy considerations, products like FluidSurveys are becoming a standard in Canadian Institutions.

FluidSurveys is an online survey creation tool that is not only created by Canadians, but also stores all survey data in Canada. The product has become a favorite amongst Federal and Provincial Governments. FluidSurveys’ rich feature set and easy to use interfaces has made it one of the most successful products launched in Canada in this space.
