The Intimate Images Protection Act (IIPA), passed in March 2023, gives the Civil Resolution Tribunal (CRT) jurisdiction to resolve claims about non-consensual sharing of intimate images.
Under IIPA, the CRT can issue protection orders that require an intimate image be deleted, de-indexed, and/or removed from a website or social media platform. If a person or internet platform doesn’t comply with a protection order, the CRT can order an administrative penalty. Administrative penalties are payable to government. The CRT can also award damages of up to $5,000.
The launch date for the CRT accepting these claims will be determined by the BC government. That date has not yet been announced.

We rely on feedback to help us improve. In preparation for launch, we invite you to test our Solution Explorer content for intimate images, then fill out a short survey about your experience.
This public beta test is open from November 14 – 30, 2023.
Feel free to explore as much as you want! But since this is a beta test, you won’t be able to:
