Canada Seeks Additional Input on Possible Foreign Influence Transparency Registry
On November 24, Public Safety Canada announced additional public consultations for a possible federal Foreign Influence Transparency Registry (FITR).
Earlier this year, the Government of Canada had solicited the public on potential new methods for the government to protect Canada against covert and deceptive foreign interference.
This new announcement is based on the feedback received through the previous consultations, which suggested a registry would not be a universal solution.
The new consultations will also focus on potential legislative amendments to the Canadian Security Intelligence Service Act, the Criminal Code, the Security of Information Act, and the Canada Evidence Act.
Anyone living in Canada, or Canadians living abroad, may share their input through a consultation webpage, which will be accepted until February 2, 2024.
