Brian Beamish, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario

Brian Beamish first began his career at the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner (IPC) in 1999, as Director of Policy and Compliance. This was followed by his appointment to Assistant Commissioner in 2005, where he directed the Tribunal Services Division – investigating privacy complaints and resolving access to information appeals.

In addition to overseeing Tribunal, Brian also served as an executive policy advisor, playing a key role in executing the mandate of the IPC and supporting several initiatives in the best interests of the public, such as bringing universities and hospitals under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and ushering in the Personal Health Information Protection Act.

Prior to joining the IPC, Brian held a number of positions within the Ontario Public Service, including with the Ministries of the Solicitor General and Correctional Services. He is a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada and a graduate of the University of Toronto Law School. In 2016, he was the recipient of the OBA Karen Spector Memorial Award for Excellence in Privacy Law.
