This short paper prepared as a brief to the House of Commons Standing Committee on Access to Information and Privacy and Ethics outlines the weaknesses of the Security of Canada Information Sharing Act (SoCISA), enacted as part of Bill C-51 in 2015. It proposes a wholesale renovation of national security information-sharing laws. Short of this, the paper proposes a number of detailed amendments to the SoCISA adding precision, coherence and more meaningful privacy protections to this awkwardly drafted instrument.
