All at Population Data BC (PopData) would like to offer our congratulations to BC’s Information and Privacy Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham, on her appointment as UK Information Commissioner. This appointment is a significant and deserved recognition of Commissioner Denham’s contributions to issues of data protection and information access.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank Commissioner Denham for all that she did to support research during her tenure as BC’s Information and Privacy Commissioner,” said Kim McGrail, PopData’s Scientific Director. “We are grateful for her consistent and frequent endorsement of the value of research, and for ongoing reminders that we can have privacy and research; it is not necessary – or desirable – to trade one against the other.”

We wish Commissioner Denham all the best in her new role and we look forward to working with her successor and to continuing collaborations with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner in BC.
