Mandatory Reporting Guidelines

Bill C-22 (Mandatory Reporting of Internet Child Pornography by Persons Who Provide an Internet Service) (the “Act”) was passed in March, 2011 and was proclaimed in force as of December 8, 2011. The Act makes it mandatory for providers of Internet services to report incidents of online child pornography. The Act is quite broad, and businesses providing WiFi access, email services or internet content hosting – including ISPs, as well as colleges, universities, public libraries, cafés, hotels, shopping malls – are caught by the Act and could receive a report about child pornography under the Act.
