Slaw: Internet child pornography reporting regulations

On December 6, 2011, the Internet Child Pornography Reporting Regulations were registered in the Canada Gazette and came into force. The goal of the regulations is to establish a framework necessary to implement the mechanics for the designated organizations receiving reports and service providers who report to discharge their duties under An Act respecting the mandatory reporting of Internet child pornography by persons who provide an Internet service.

On December 8, 2011, the federal Act respecting the mandatory reporting of Internet child pornography by persons who provide an Internet service (formerly Bill C-22) came into force. The new legislation aims to protect children from online sexual exploitation, by requiring suppliers of Internet services to the public to:

  • Report tips they receive regarding websites where child pornography may be publicly available to the Canadian Centre for Child Protection
  • Notify police and safeguard evidence if they believe that a child pornography offence has been committed using an Internet service that they provide
