This accelerated IAPP Certified Information Privacy Professional/Canada (CIPP/C) course, will demonstrate you have an understanding and application of Canadian information privacy laws, principles and practices at the federal, provincial and territorial levels.

A CIPP/C credential ensures you share common knowledge and understanding with your colleagues in related practice areas, including information security, marketing, IT, compliance and product development.
We regularly update our programs to stay current with major privacy topics. So you know you’re ahead of the competition when it comes to the latest developments in the field.

Canada’s distinctive federal/provincial/territorial data privacy governance systems closely regulate the collection and use of personal information. Canadian Privacy Training, the principal course for CIPP/C certification, enables privacy professionals to understand the interplay between different tiers of laws and regulations and help their organizations avoid regulatory penalties and damage to their reputations.

Canadian Privacy Training, the training aligned with CIPP/C certification, teaches the legal foundations of Canadian privacy, public- and private- sector practices, relevant international privacy laws such as the GDPR, and security practices that relate to privacy.

In just 4 days, you’ll learn Canadian Privacy Fundamentals. You’ll also learn about:

  • The Canadian Government and Legal System
  • Enforcement Agencies and Powers
  • Canadian Privacy Laws and Practices in the Private Sector
  • Canadian Privacy Laws and Practices in the Public Sector

At the end of this course, you’ll achieve your IAPP Certified Information Privacy Professional/Canada (CIPP/C)certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get certified at twice the speed of the traditional training and get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.



This course is ideal for:

  • Privacy professionals who manage or work within Canadian compliance frameworks; oversee data collection, processing and storage operations; and are working toward CIPP/C certification.
