Revealed: Federal Government’s September Directive for National Security Review of TikTok.

Revealed

Canadian Government Orders National Security Review of TikTok

• The Canadian government ordered a national security review of TikTok in September 2023, but did not disclose it publicly due to confidentiality provisions of the Investment Canada Act.
• The review is based on the expansion of a business, which it considers the establishment of a new Canadian entity.
• The review is not accessible online due to the protection and confidentiality of the Investment Canada Act.


• The review is part of a new policy on foreign investments in the interactive digital media sector, which warns of potential misuse of foreign investments to propagate disinformation or manipulate information in a way that threatens Canada’s national security.
• The review is not related to the proposed U.S. bill, which concerns the company’s ownership structure as a national security threat.

TikTok’s US-China Relations and Canadian Concerns

• TikTok, a subsidiary of Chinese tech firm ByteDance Ltd, is under scrutiny by U.S. lawmakers for its ties to the Chinese government.
• The U.S. government could demand access to TikTok’s U.S. consumer data, under Chinese national security laws.
• The bill, which requires Senate review, is expected to be signed by U.S. President Joe Biden.


• Canadian creators, including Scott Benzie, fear a ban on TikTok could end their careers and revenue streams.
• Nathan Kennedy, a content creator, remains calm, stating that threats to ban TikTok have been around for years.
• The Canadian government has issued a new policy on foreign investments in the interactive digital media sector, indicating increased scrutiny of TikTok.
• The federal government banned TikTok from its mobile devices in February 2023.
