CBC News reports Halifax Stanfield International Airport has installed 24 kiosks equipped with facial recognition technology. International travelers arriving at the Canadian border will have their passports examined in one of the machines, with the kiosk then scanning the person’s face to compare the pictures. The Canada Border Services Agency said it has complied with the procedures required by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada, including ensuring the collected data is encrypted before it is sent to the agency. McInnes Cooper Partner David Fraser said travelers should be aware of the ways the CBSA is using their personal information, while calling for the agency to be transparent on what information is collected and the amount of time it will be stored.
