Industry committee  There are gaps in the law. If data are to be properly protected in the current deficient framework, the trust that must be placed in the company becomes a particularly important factor. We should therefore stay away from less trustworthy companies, obviously.

Industry committee  Thank you very much.

Industry committee  Data is moved around between administrations and between countries. Therefore, there is a need for strong laws in all jurisdictions, including the federal government. This is a factor that cannot be ignored.

Daniel Therrien

Industry committee  For the past few years, we have been proposing rights-based federal legislative reform. The principles of our assessment framework have been taken up in large part in our joint statement with our provincial colleagues. We are therefore talking about such principles, which are gen

Industry committee  I don't think property law concepts are so applicable here. It's clear that privacy rights seek to give individuals significant control over their information, including their health information, although it may not be a proprietary right. That being said, if an authority—

Industry committee  Are you talking about a contact-tracing app?

Industry committee  The only tracking application for which we were consulted in detail was Mila's in Montreal. The federal government has no legal obligation to consult us. We offered our services. The government may have decided not to do business with the company in question, in which case it do

Industry committee  I may be out of date. Certainly in Alberta an application has been in place for some time now.

May 29th, 2020Committee meeting

Daniel Therrien

Industry committee  The compliance with privacy laws of the application used in Alberta is currently under review by my provincial colleague, Jill Clayton. This issue is therefore on hold. I would say, very summarily, that there is certainly an alignment of the conditions of use of this application

Industry committee  I'm afraid not.

May 29th, 2020Committee meeting

Daniel Therrien

Industry committee  That's an excellent question. Adoption rates in many territories are around 20%. Even if an application were mandatory, there would be ways for the population to get around that, such as not using a phone. This brings us back to reality. In my opinion, there has to be a voluntary

Industry committee  In general, decentralized systems provide better privacy protection. Having said that, we are not opposed to some centralized aspects, as long as the data is deemed necessary by a public health authority, such as knowing where the outbreaks are.

May 29th, 2020Committee meeting

Daniel Therrien

Industry committee  The higher the adoption rate, the better for efficiency and data analysis. I agree with that. In terms of the time during which the application will be used, one must realize that we are talking about particularly sensitive data that would not normally be collected. I'm not sure

Daniel Therrien

Industry committee  I'll first talk about tracking applications, and then I'll come back to technology in a more general way. As we explained, many of the principles we propose for tracking applications are currently not legally binding. This is the case, for example, with the principle that applic

May 29th, 2020Committee meeting

Industry committee  I'll give some examples. Getting back to the tracking apps, I would say that a large part of the Canadian population will probably not be convinced that this information will be used properly, because people already don't trust the current legal framework. That in itself is a maj
