Today, trade secrets and confidential commercial information pertain to some of the most important assets in the digital and knowledge economies. Trade secrets are information-based assets that are not widely known, derive value from not being widely known, and have been the subject of reasonable steps to maintain and continue their secrecy. Confidential information are information-based assets that are not available from other sources in the public domain or obtainable by observation, independent study, or reverse engineering; originate in circumstances giving rise to a reasonable expectation the information will not be disclosed; and, whether supplied by law or voluntarily, are communicated within a relationship that will be fostered for the public benefit by confidential communication. Although confidential information does not always have economic value, assets of economic value are the focus of this work.
In this timely overview of the law, The Law of Trade Secrets and Confidential Information in Canada examines the Canadian law on trade secrets and confidential information in all its relevant domestic contexts. This includes the unique approaches of both the common law and Quebec civil law, relevant procedural considerations, criminal and national security dimensions of the law, and access to information frameworks. Additionally, it provides brief commentary on the history, justification, and policy objectives of the law. The work also provides an overview of proposed reforms.
