The pandemic forced Canadians to live a greater proportion of their lives online than ever before. It also accelerated the prevalence and popularity of e-commerce, and many are predicting that online delivery will remain a key feature of the restaurant industry. During this disruption, the federal government proposed a number of regulatory interventions designed to moderate and even improve our everyday lives; like updated privacy and consumer protection legislation (Bill C-11) and Bill-C-10. In this lecture, Bednar will point to future policy opportunities that Canadian policymakers must address and point to harms on the horizon. Audience members will leave with a stronger sense of how and whether policy interventions can make a meaningful difference in their everyday lives.
