From a legal standpoint, the global technological landscape has shifted dramatically. The instalment of automated and semi-automated technologies raises legal, ethical and policy issues, especially in terms of privacy, security and liability. Canada is well positioned to take a leadership role in shaping the policy response to the opportunities and risks arising from health technologies. With a focus on the policy issues at the intersection of health and technology,  this session will look at the impact of technology on society, its challenges and how Canada can thrive in the 21st century.
