The Admissibility of Electronic Records in Canada
On November 22nd, the ARMA Prince Edward Island Chapter (ARMA PEI) will hold an education seminar on records as evidence and e-discovery.
In the morning, I will present on the admissibility of electronic records in Canada. This session will review the provisions for using electronic records in Canada and PEI, Canadian requirements for the admissibility of electronic records as documentary evidence, and the key provisions of two Canadian General Standards Board standards: Electronic Records as Documentary Evidence (CAN/CGSB-72.34) which addresses digital electronic records in any form and Microfilm and Electronic Images as Documentary Evidence (CAN/CGSB-72.11-93) which addresses microfilm and digitized images. The session will also illustrate how compliance with those standards will enable any organization to demonstrate the integrity, reliability and trustworthiness of its electronic record systems to maximize the probability that such records will be admissible as evidence in Canadian courts.
In the afternoon, Kelly Friedman, LLB will present on e-discovery. Ms. Friedman is a partner at Davis LLP and presented the Sunday keynote address at the 2012 ARMA Canada Region conference.
