Torts - Privacy

Hopkins v Kay (Ont CA, 2015)

In this case the Court of Appeal considered whether a statutory privacy scheme [here Ontario's Personal Health Information Protection Act ("PHIPA")], which includes a statutory cause of action, established an exhaustive code that set the parameters of reasonable privacy expectations for purposes of the Jones v Tsige common law privacy tort of 'intrusion upon seclusion'. The court held that PHIPA did not establish such an exhaustive code [paras 29-73].
