On June 10, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada (OPCC) released a draft “Privacy guidance on facial recognition for police agencies,” a proposed guideline for police to follow when using facial recognition technology (FRT), “with a view to ensuring any use of FR complies with the law, minimizes privacy risks, and respects privacy rights.” The OPCC sought feedback from stakeholders on this draft guidance, which was developed jointly by the federal, provincial and territorial privacy protection authorities, and outlines the current privacy and legal framework that applies to police use of FRT. The consultation’s feedback questions fell under one of two main considerations: Whether the guidance will be effective in ensuring police use of FRT is lawful and privacy protective, or whether FRT is appropriately regulated under the existing legal and policy framework. PIAC contributed a submission which expressed substantial doubt on both fronts.
