Petition to the House of Commons

Whereas:
  • The government plans to allow Statistics Canada to gather transactional level personal banking information of 500,000 Canadians without their knowledge or consent;
  • Canadians’ personal financial and banking information belongs to them, not to the government;
  • Canadians have a right to privacy and to know and consent to when their financial and banking information is being accessed and for what purpose;
  • Media reports highlight that this banking information is being collected for the purposes of developing “a new institutional personal information bank”; and
  • This is a gross intrusion into Canadians’ personal and private lives.
We, the undersigned, Citizens and Residents of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to immediately cancel this initiative which amounts of a gross invasion of privacy, and ensure such requests for personal data never happen again.
