The Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada has announced the award of several grants including contributions from the City of Gatineau, the Québec government, Converge Technology Solutions, Equitable Bank and Sagard Holdings, bringing the organization closer to its initial objective of USD 1 million, the company said.
The Lab also wants to acknowledge the thought leadership demonstrated by the early adopters of its service including SecureKey Technologies, TreeFort, ExactData, Identos, Northern Block, Notarius and Prodigy Labs.
The Lab is Canada´s first independent and neutral organization to promote the compliance of and interoperability between digital ID solutions across public and private sectors, bridging a crucial gap in the advancement of Canada´s digital ecosystem.
The organization in Canada that is setting the compliance and interoperability framework for digital ID is the Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (“DIACC”). Together with leaders in the Canadian digital ID industry, DIACC delivered the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework earlier this year.
As part of its mandate as a centre of excellence in cybersecurity, In-Sec-M, Canada´s cybersecurity industry cluster, provided support and seed funding to the Lab.
The Lab is an independent non-profit entity dedicated to accelerating the adoption of user-centric digital identity solutions by promoting technical conformity and interoperability. For more information, visit www.digidlab.ca.
