Privacy commissioner investigating Trudeau’s ArriveCAN app

Canada’s privacy commissioner has launched an investigation into the controversial ArriveCAN app amid complaints that the app is collecting travellers’ personal information.

“Our office has received and is currently investigating a complaint that raises concerns with respect to the collection of personal information through ArriveCAN and subsequent use of that information,” said the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada in an email dated July 27.

While Global News asked the privacy commissioner for more information regarding its investigation, the privacy watchdog said “given the ongoing investigation and consultations, we do not have further details to provide at this time.”
