SO THE ZOOM YOU ATTENDED WAS RECORDED.
How Co-op members meet to conduct the business of a Co-op has changed due to Covid as has the manner of meetings of all sorts of organizations. Virtual meetings bring about challenges and they are certainly not a perfect replacement for live face to face meetings. A recurring issue, in Co-op's and all other forums in which "virtual" is replacing in person is the ability of persons to participate. Not everyone has the technology nor the ability to navigate the virtual processes.
A question that has arisen in many contexts is about the digital recordings of the virtual proceedings. Can those be shared? Do members of a Co-op have the right to see them? Does it all depend on the purpose for which the recordings were created? Can you use the recordings to further the business of the Co-op by sharing them more widely to get input from other members who are not able to participate remotely?
I'm not sure that there is a wholly satisfactory answer but here at least is a start to an analysis and answer for your consideration.
An Ontario Non-Profit Housing Co-operative will digitally record members meetings including those parts of members meetings conducted on ZOOM etc.. After the meetings the Co-op will make the recordings available to the Co-op membership. Is this lawful and are there any privacy right concerns respecting the distribution of the recordings of the meetings? Nothing is recorded secretly.Co-operative Corporations Act, RSO 1990, c C.35
