Drones in Canada
Will the Proliferation of Domestic Drone Use in Canada Raise New Concerns for Privacy?Website or Online Data - 2013
"The purpose of this research report is to explore the emergence and privacy impacts of drone technology in Canada, and question how the proliferation of their use in Canada could present new concerns from a privacy perspective. Part 1 of this report provides an overview of drone terminology, drone types and drone attributes. Part 2 sets out to explore some of the current and prospective uses for drones in a domestic context (civilian drones), covering the public and private sectors and also recreational use. Part 3 will set out the current state of affairs in Canada in terms of regulating drone flight, and outline how outstanding safety concerns remain the primary barrier to their implementation in certain contexts, with only few codes of conduct making mention of privacy as a concern related to drone flights. Part 4 examines how the unique characteristics of drones could have distinct privacy implications, and how Canada's privacy laws and existing guidance would likely apply to the use of drones."--Introduction.
