Protecting Rights and Competitiveness in the Digital World

Canadians now live in a digital world—many of us work online, buy groceries online, our children even go to school online. We connect with loved ones online, we post pictures of life’s milestones online, and we do some of our most sensitive transactions online.

A digital society must be built on a foundation of trust. In 2019, we launched Canada’s Digital Charter, which lays out 10 principles to build that foundation of trust. In November 2020, we proposed legislation to implement the Charter.

  • We will move forward on legislation that will implement the Digital Charter, strengthen privacy protections for consumers, and provide a clear set of rules that ensure fair competition in the online marketplace.
