In Canada, these developments include a number of proposed new pieces of legislation affecting the communications industry such as amendments to the Broadcasting Act, online harm, compensation for news media and the Accessibility Canada Act. Sessions are also being planned to cover the appropriate regulatory treatment of platforms, competition in the commercial mobile industry, solutions to the digital divide, dispute resolution, 5G and cybersecurity, Indigenous broadcasting, issues in the gaming industry, synthetic media, data collection procedures and more.

As always, keynote speakers addressed important domestic and international developments.
