Hello 2021-2022 Privacy and Access to Information Law Section Members!
I am Jaime Cardy, the chair of our Section Executive for 2021-2022. I wanted to kick off the year by introducing myself and expressing my enthusiasm for the year ahead.
I have been a member of the Executive since 2016, and have held various roles, including secretary, newsletter editor, and vice-chair, during that time. Professionally speaking, I am an adjudicator at the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, where I decide appeals and complaints arising under Ontario's access and privacy laws.
In past years, our Section has had a very engaged membership. Together, you have generated interesting and topical content for the OBA Section Newsletter and Discussion Board; attended and participated in excellent CPD programs; and helped the Executive stay on top of public affairs. I imagine this year will be no different, and I encourage you all to get involved by continuing to volunteer your time and expertise for some of these, and other, initiatives, whenever possible.
