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.
