The members of the parliamentary committee responsible for studying the ance image of contact tracing tools submitted a report without recommendations. Instead, they opted for “observations” in which they record the many risks associated with this type of application.

“Quebec’s legal framework is inadequate for the protection of data and personal information and access to information, compliance with information and the fight against discrimination,” it said.

There is no “majority opinion of experts” on the “impact of contact notification applications”. On the other hand, “In the opinion of the majority of experts, those with a population larger than COVID-19 have less access to contact notification applications,” the report said.
