Investigative Powers for the 21st Century Act > Proposed Legislation

As widely reported, the federal government has just introduced Bill C-46 and Bill C-47 which propose to increase the responsibility of internet providers to keep information about users and materials sent over their systems and potentially increase the access of police forces to this information.

Reporting by the CBC and others has been extensive, focusing generally on privacy concerns.

Both Bills have only been introduced in First Reading and it is unclear whether they ultimately will be passed.

In Ontario as background, the Information and Privacy Commissioner (Ontario) office deals with privacy concerns of Ontarians.
