CSIS DDO Directive on Information Sharing with Agencies with Poor Human Rights Records (2008)

Subject

Information-sharing

Description

Document Purpose: Deputy Director of Operations (DDO) Directive on Information Sharing with Agencies with Poor Human Rights Records. This directive sets out the principles that guide CSIS’s actions in the sharing, seeking, and use of information from agencies or governments with poor human rights records. The purpose of the Directive is not to curtail information exchange, but to ensure that decisions to exchange are made at a level “commensurate with the potential risks” that the exchange may result in the mistreatment of individuals.
Document Analysis: Much of the document is redacted. It seems that the DDO stresses the need to remain sensitive to responsibilities in protecting individuals form mistreatment that could result from CSIS’s action or inaction, but balancing these responsibilities with CSIS’s mandate to protect Canadians poses difficult challenges at times. An employee must believe – on the basis of Human Rights profiles and knowledge of a country/agency –  that there is a credible possibility that sharing of information could contribute to the mistreatment of an individual.
