GDPR Applicability in Canada

Hello - I work for a US multi-national corporation. We have offices in many countries including the EU and EEA as well as in many other countries. Would the GDPR apply to those countries outside the EU / EEA? I work out of the Canadian office. Would the GDPR apply?

Yes, the GDPR applies if your company offers goods or services in the EEA or processes personal data of EU individuals, even if it is located outside the EEA. Being in Canada, your organization can enjoy the adequacy decision of the EU Commission that simplifies the transfer between EEA and Canada.

Here you can find more information about the extraterritorial effect of GDPR
