De Beers Canada Inc.

On March 10, 2014, Justice Perell of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice dismissed an application brought by Mountain Province Diamonds for disclosure of detailed employee personal information from De Beers Canada Inc. At issue in the application was whether the requested disclosure was permitted, or would be ordered to take place, in light of the requirements of the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA). The Court stated that PIPEDA applies to the employee personal information being sought. The Court refused Mountain Province Diamonds’ request for an order compelling the disclosure without the consent of the affected employees, without an applicable exception to the consent requirement and without an independent basis to make such an order. De Beers was advised by Alex Cameron of Fasken Martineau. Read the Ontario Superior Court of Justice Decision: Mountain Province Diamonds Inc. v. De Beers Canada Inc., 2014 ONSC 2026  (PDF)
