The Canadian Anonymization Network (“CANON”) is a network comprised of large-scale data custodians from across the private, public and health sectors, whose primary purpose is to promote anonymization as a privacy-respectful means of leveraging data for economic and socially-beneficial purposes.
Co-founded by AccessPrivacy, Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Symcor and Telus, CANON has quickly grown to include some of the largest data custodians from private, public and health institutions across the country.
CANON is a registered not-for-profit corporation.
