C-1.1 - Act to establish a legal framework for information technology

Full text
15. To ensure the integrity of a copy of a technology-based document, the copying process must offer a sufficient guarantee that it contains the same information as the source document.
To assess the integrity of a copy, account must be taken of the circumstances in which the copy was made and of whether it was made systematically and without interruption or by means of a process meeting the technical norms or standards approved by a recognized body referred to in section 68.
However, where it is necessary to establish that a document is a copy, it must include characteristics as to form allowing it to be recognized as a copy, such as an indication of the place and date on which the copy was generated, a statement that it is a copy, or any other characteristic.
The integrity of a copy generated by an enterprise within the meaning of the Civil Code or by the State shall be presumed in favour of third persons.
