ASL Interpretation: Confirmed.

Police and security agencies in Canada have long subjected Indigenous, Black, and Muslim communities as well as activist groups to illegal surveillance. Algorithmic policing and technological surveillance by law enforcement and spy agencies have rapidly—and quietly—expanded in Canada. These practices threaten privacy and civil liberties, encode patterns of inequality, and solidify colonial structures.

Join us for a chance to hear from academic, community, and legal experts on how new forms of technological surveillance... and criminalization impact over-policed communities by reconfiguring state and social power.
