Leaders in Privacy
and Personal Information Protection
We are an Ottawa-based consulting firm specializing in Canadian privacy compliance. If you are looking to improve your organization’s personal information handling practices – or aren’t sure of your obligations under Canadian privacy laws – our legal, compliance and policy professionals can help.
Our business is based on a simple belief: that getting privacy right can be a competitive advantage for our clients. We recognize the need for personal information in facilitating commerce and in delivering government services, and believe that a balance between the fair use of personal information and the privacy rights of individuals is always achievable.
We have assembled a talented and passionate team of legal, compliance and policy professionals, and are intent on becoming the best and only choice for privacy specialists in the eyes of our clients.
what our clients say
"Navroze was patient when we were overwhelmed. He was the taskmaster that we needed to keep our work on track. He helped us with insight into our privacy practices in ways in which I hadn't expected. For us, the PIA process with PRIVPRO went beyond ensuring compliance with the TBS PIA Directive. It fundamentally altered our planned program and service offerings."− Director, Federal Department
"My relationship with Navroze Austin and PRIVPRO has benefited me and our company tremendously. The compliance process that Navroze presided over helped transform our privacy policies and governance framework from a series of haphazard and disjointed protocols to a unified and comprehensive compliance plan."− Chief Privacy Officer, Privately Held Company
"We felt that undertaking a privacy audit was a great way to create a baseline for the ongoing development of our information handling practices. It also helped us to act proactively in the face of concerns by federal regulators with respect to our privacy breach protocols. There's a lot to consider when choosing a consultant to work with. We found PRIVPRO to be professional and responsive. Navroze has a unique background. He was incredibly valuable in leading the day-to-day of our privacy audit, and in pinpointing regulatory expectations that we weren't aware of."− Director General, Internal Audit, Federal Agency
"We've undertaken a number of privacy impact assessments (PIAs) over the years. The results of those assessments have varied by consultant. With PRIVPRO, we found the PIA process to be far more comprehensive and tailored to our departmental and program needs. Navroze's legal background, coupled with his experience with central agencies and regulators, I think, allows him to avoid the cookie cutter or checklist approach to PIAs which most consultants have unfortunately adopted."− ATIP Coordinator, Federal Central Agency
Our success is measured by our client’s satisfaction, so we do our best work on each and every engagement. We promise excellence, candour and confidentiality in all that we do.
We’re an independent firm with a creative team of professionals. We don’t charge for initial consultations and we offer fair pricing on all of our products and services. Not only do we think this best promotes privacy, we think it makes our work great value for money.
