Filling in Three Missing Peer Reviews for IRCC’s Algorithmic Impact Assessments by VIB

Peer review projects by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada

Our principal lawyer, Will Tao, has recently shared three currently unreleased peer reviews conducted as part of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Algorithmic Impact Assessments on the following projects:

(1) Spouse in Canada Advanced Analytics Triage;
(2) Advanced Analytics for Overseas Temporary Resident Visa Applications (known as ROW);
(3) Integrity Trends Analysis Tool (“ITAT”)

Before sharing, Will also provides a rationale for the increasing requirements for peer reviews.

One of Will’s key takeaways/recommendations is that there needs to be a built-in comment period between the draft and publication/production of the final AIA that allows external stakeholders/experts to comment and push back on the AIA’s self-assessment and peer reviews.
