RCMP's use of facial recognition tech violated privacy laws, investigation finds

The RCMP's use of a controversial, third-party facial recognition technology was a serious violation of Canada's privacy laws, the privacy commissioner says.

Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien tabled a report to Parliament this morning after investigating the national police force's use of software from U.S.-based Clearview AI.

He concluded that by using this software, the RCMP violated the section of the Privacy Act that says that no personal information can be collected by a government institution "unless it relates directly to an operating program or activity of the institution."

"The use of facial recognition technology by the RCMP to search through massive repositories of Canadians who are innocent of any suspicion of crime presents a serious violation of privacy," Therrien said in the report.

"A government institution cannot collect personal information from a third party agent if that third party agent collected the information unlawfully."
