'Upskirting' in Canada
In Canada, surreptitiously photographing up women’s skirts or recording video of the same view is punishable under the voyeurism section of the Criminal Code.
Anyone found to have made upskirt images, or similar images where the victim had a “reasonable expectation of privacy,” for a sexual purpose faces up to five years in jail.
Authorities across Canada, including transit officials on busy systems in Toronto and Vancouver, have had to deal with cases of upskirt photographers in recent years.
