    CAN-TECH Law Women in Tech presents: Unpacking Canada's Approach to Online Harms

    Monday, May 27, 12 to 1 p.m. ET on Zoom

    Join us for a discussion on Canada’s proposed Online Harms Act, which seeks to regulate social media services, including livestreaming and adult content services. Bill C-63’S long-awaited online harms framework marks Canada's response to the evolving global landscape of platform regulation, following in the footsteps of laws such as the E.U. Digital Services Act and the U.K. Online Safety Act. Our panel of experts will delve into the anticipated impact of the Act, potential issues arising from the Act as currently drafted, its alignment and interoperability with analogous laws worldwide, and measures necessary to comply with obligations relating to content moderation, transparency, and child protection. Don't miss this opportunity to gain valuable insights into the dynamic arena of platform governance.

    RECORDING: 2023 CAN-TECH Spring Conference: Back to Basics Bootcamp

    This was a first-of-its-kind CANTECH conference. The event was held from coast-to-coast – starting in Vancouver and ending in Halifax – with five offices (Vancouver, Regina, Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax) each hosting one live panel and participating in the other panels via Zoom. This let the attendees participate in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner, while still getting all the benefits of the breadth and depth of experience that CANTECH’s members have to offer.

    Highlights include a conversation about limitations of liability and indemnity between Dana Siddle, a partner at McCarthy Tetrault LLP, and Rahim Esmail, Senior Counsel at TELUS, before moving on to Regina where Joseph Gill, a partner at McKercher LLP and Azure-Dee Ashton, Counsel at Saskatchewan Power Corporation discussed service levels.

    Andrew Alleyne, partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP, Mark Bowman, Senior Legal Counsel at Interac Corp. and Justice Agyemang, Senior Legal Counsel, HSBC Bank Canada broke down clauses that are often overlooked, and by colour-coding parts of clauses that are pertinent to the buy- and sell-side the attendees developed a better understanding of the positions they should be advancing on behalf of their clients. 

    Montreal had Eugen Miscoi, associate at McCarthy Tetrault LLP, and Patrice Labonte, General Counsel North America, Valtech share their knowledge about privacy and cybersecurity issues in a contract. This panel dissected LinkedIn’s Data Processing Agreement, a DPA that probably has the biggest impact on the attendees.

    Finally, Jennifer Davidson, CANTECH’s president and partner at Deeth Williams Wall LLP, moderated a panel of David Fraser, a partner at McInnes Cooper, and Harj Gill, who most recently was Corporate Counsel for NTT Data Services, in an open and honest conversation about what lawyers new to the profession can do to ensure their success, the importance of mentorship, and how we can learn from our mistakes. (This was not recorded in order to allow for open and honest dialogue from our panel and audience).

    The hope was that the attendees would leave the conference feeling more confident and comfortable in their understanding of technology transactions, the contracts, and the issues that often come up in them. Based on the expertise the panelists shared, and the accompanying materials, mission accomplished.
