G23-P020 The NeuroPrivacy and BioData Framework Act
Section 3 of The Privacy Act (R.S.C., 1985, c. P-21) shall be amended under the definition of “personal information.”
Section 3(n) shall be added which reads: “Information related to biorhythms or neurological patterns.” The Criminal Code will be updated to include a law against the collection of neurological patterns or biorhythmic data without the consent of the individual, with a special focus on espionage, blackmail or political manipulation.
The Criminal Code will be updated with reference to s. 7 and s. 8 of the Charter of Rights to Freedoms to protect citizens from unreasonable search by law enforcement using techniques to collect biorhythms or neurological patterns, especially when they have an expectation of privacy.
A committee will be convened to created a comprehensive framework for NeuroPrivacy Rights, as well as a plan for regulating technologies that can breach NeuroPrivacy Rights.
