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

Full text
41. The use, as proof of one’s identity or the identity of another person, of a technology-based document specifying a personal characteristic or a particular fact or indicating that the person to be identified possesses a particular object requires that the integrity of the document be preserved.
Such a document must, in addition, be protected from interception if its storage or transmission on a communication network makes it possible to usurp the identity of the person referred to in the document. Its confidentiality must be protected, where applicable, and its consultation must be logged.
