The AIDA aims to regulate international and interprovincial trade and commerce in AI systems by establishing common requirements for the design, development, and use of those systems, as well as prohibit certain conduct in AI systems. 

Prohibited systems include those that may result in serious harm to individuals or harm to their interests. 

The regulation differentiates between high-impact systems and systems that are not high-impact, unlike with the AI Act that differentiates degrees of 'impact' or 'risk'. 

In November 2022, Canada has introduced the Digital Charter Implementation Act (Bill C-27), which proposes three acts that have been described as a holistic package of legislation for trust and privacy: the Consumer Privacy Protection Act, the Personal Information and Data Protection Tribunal Act, and the Artificial Intelligence & Data Act (AIDA). The Bill is currently going through the legislative process in Canada and is not enforceable yet.
