Artificial Intelligence and the Law in Canada

Florian Martin-Bariteau and Teresa Scassa - law professors at the University of Ottawa - highlight the structural transformation of our society through the contribution of artificial intelligence and question how existing legal frameworks can or should adapt to this new technology. The book will be available in early 2021 in print, electronic and QuickLaw versions. The content will be freely available in early 2022.

Bringing together some of the leading Canadian scholars in the field, Artificial Intelligence and the Law in Canada captures the diversity of law and policy challenges facing Canada when it comes to AI. It offers insight into how existing laws might apply, what gaps are present, and what issues law reform should address. Because AI creates significant new challenges for law and public policy, each chapter begins with a summary of key challenges and issues from the perspective of the author, and ends with an assessment of risks and opportunities, and key gaps in the law.
