On October 5, the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry (ISED) wrote a letter to the Standing Committee on Industry and Technology proposing amendments to Artificial Intelligence and Data Act (AIDA), which was introduced as part of Bill C-27 in June 2022. Further information on AIDA can be found in our previous update.

The letter suggests amendments in the following areas:

• specifying roles and obligations for different actors in the AI value chain;
• clarifying obligations for generative general-purpose AI systems, like ChatGPT;
• defining classes of systems that would be considered high impact;
• strengthening and clarifying the role of the proposed AI and Data Commissioner; and
• aligning with the EU AI Act as well as other advanced economies.
