*Important, Please Note:
Possession of Devices Designed for Surreptitious Interception of Private Communications
As per section 191 of the Criminal Code of Canada:
Everyone who possesses, sells or purchases any electro-magnetic, acoustic, mechanical or other device or any component thereof knowing that the design thereof renders it primarily useful for surreptitious interception of private communications is guilty of an indictable offence.
In Canada, only government and law enforcement personnel may possess audio surveillance devices unless special licensing is issued by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). Because of this, training programs run in Canada are subject to section 191 of the criminal code and therefore cannot legally utilize such devices as there are no licenses issued for training purposes. Licenses granted for demonstration purposes are strictly for demonstration to government and law enforcement only. In addition, there is no difference in the law with regards to “test transmitters” or “training aids” if they are capable of intercepting private communications.
For more information, or if you have any questions with regards to possession of audio surveillance equipment or its use in training, we recommend contacting the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) directly.
