The AIDA companion document: A roadmap for Canada’s artificial intelligence law
The Artificial Intelligence Data Act (the AIDA), which is being introduced by the Canadian government alongside the Consumer Privacy Protection Act (CPPA) as part of Bill C-27, the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022, is Canada’s first attempt at regulating artificial intelligence (AI). On March 14, 2023, Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada (ISED) published the AIDA companion document (the companion document), which is particularly helpful since the AIDA draft currently being considered by the government leaves many core concepts to be defined through regulation (e.g., what may be considered as a high-impact system and triggers the implementation of risk mitigation measures).
We have prepared an article, in which we summarize the companion document and analyze how it supplements our understanding of the AIDA. You can consult our article available on BLG’s website.
