Canada privacy watchdogs plan to release Thursday their findings into Facebook Inc.'s involvement with political-data firm Cambridge Analytica.

The social-media company has been under investigation in several countries since it disclosed last year that it had suspended the firm, which did work for President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign, over privacy violations.

On Wednesday, Facebook said it had discussed with the Federal Trade Commission in the U.S. a fine of about $5 billion, which would be the largest privacy-related fine in FTC history.

The FTC is probing whether Facebook violated the terms of a 2012 settlement under which Facebook agreed to get user consent for collecting personal data and sharing it with others.

In October, the U.K.'s privacy watchdog fined Facebook £500,000 for allowing Cambridge Analytica to access illicitly users' data.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada and the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia have also been investigating Facebook and Canada's AggregateIQ over unathorized access and use of Facebook user profiles.
