Canada says AIA (Algorithmic Impact Assessment) is must before deploying new AI Systems in federal government (3/9)

Canada has issued a directive titled “Directive on Automated Decision-Making”

The objective of this Directive is to ensure that Automated Decision Systems are deployed in a manner that reduces risks to Canadians and federal institutions, and leads to more efficient, accurate, consistent, and interpretable decisions made pursuant to Canadian law.

It applies to any system, tool, or statistical models used to recommend or make an administrative decision about a client (citizens, businesses, non-Canadians, or organizations, e.g., non-profit or internal to government).
