About Prop-ID

The Proportionate ID research project is funded as part of the Information Policy Research Program (IPRP) by grants from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) for Performing Identities (2008-2011) and the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada’s Contributions Program (2010-2011).

You are welcome to view our original proposal for the project here. (pdf file)

  • IX Maps, an interactive tool designed to permit Internet users to see the route that their packets take across North America;
  • PIPWatch, (pdf file) a web browser toolbar designed to help users determine which websites they visit comply with Canadian privacy legislation.
