Thank you for your question.

There are no specific laws regarding ‘downloading from the internet’. The applicability of a law would depend on what is being downloaded, for instance if the material being downloaded is done without permission, then the Copyrights Act would be applicable. If the information downloaded is to be used for fraud, then the Criminal Code would be applicable etc.
