Artificial Intelligence and Data Act – Canada
Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming our economy and being used to tackle some of our toughest challenges, like fighting cancer, improving food production and reducing energy consumption. What's more, Canadian researchers and businesses are at the forefront of this transformation.AI systems use data to automate complex tasks and sometimes to make decisions or predictions about people. While these systems can be beneficial, they can also have significant impacts on Canadians, especially marginalized communities.
The proposed Artificial Intelligence and Data Act (AIDA), introduced as part of the Digital Charter Implementation Act, 2022, would set the foundation for the responsible design, development and deployment of AI systems that impact the lives of Canadians.
The Act would ensure that AI systems deployed in Canada are safe and non-discriminatory and would hold businesses accountable for how they develop and use these technologies
