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

Full text
4. A technology-based document, even when the information it contains is fragmented and dispersed in one or more media at one or more locations, is considered to form a whole if its logical structuring elements allow the fragments to be connected, directly or by reference, and if such elements ensure both the integrity of each fragment and the integrity of the document reconstituted as it existed prior to its fragmentation and dispersal.
Conversely, separate technology-based documents, even when combined into a single document for transmission or retention purposes, do not lose their distinct nature, if logical structuring elements ensure both the integrity of the combined document and the integrity of each separate reconstituted document.
