Abstract

The Government of Canada has committed to accelerating the growth of the country’s world-class AI sector. This emerging technology has the potential to impact nearly every segment of Canada’s economy, including national security, health care and government services. To prepare for the key challenges and opportunities that artificial intelligence (AI) will give rise to, we offer an innovative governance model for Canadian governments to adopt. This model recognizes the uncertainty ahead and prioritizes oversight and accountability while also encouraging a flexible policy-first approach. This approach fosters responsible AI innovation and supports Canada’s emergence as a leader in AI technology and governance.

Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, Intellectual Property, Law and Technology, Public Policy, Governance, Innovation
