How did they hit on 92?
I just completed the 2006 Canadian Census online.
As befitting a country with two official languages, there were the expected many pages of questions covering what fraction of the time I spoke English/French at home, at work, in public transit, in private transit, on the toilet etc.
At the end of the survey, each member of my household was given the opportunity to opt-in for the public release of our data at some point in the future - specifically 92 years from now.
I gave my consent just so I won't have to deal with them pestering me when I'm 134.
I think we need a Canada specific Identity Rights Agreement policy & identifier.
