Ottawa: The federal cabinet ordered a national security review of TikTok last September but did not disclose it publicly on the grounds the information was protected and confidential under the Investment Canada Act.
Industry Minister Francois-Philippe Champagne’s office says the review was based on the expansion of a previous business, which it says constituted the establishment of a new Canadian entity.
It says the Chinese-based company would be subject to enhanced scrutiny under the act under a new policy on foreign investments in the interactive digital media sector.
