It is with great gratitude and enthusiasm that we share with you some excellent news for IDLab: the Quebec government has confirmed a $3M financial support for IDLab to consolidate its activities in Gatineau!

This financial support is in addition to the $500K already provided by the Government of Quebec at the creation of IDLab and to the financial support provided by the other partners of IDLab: Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions, Desjardins, City of Gatineau, Accenture, EQ Bank, Deloitte, Interac Corp., KPMG and Sagard – SNPE Holding Company. We also thank Converge Technology Solutions Corp., through their subsidiary Becker-Carroll, A Converge Company, for their loan of computer equipment during the first months of IDLab.

The entire IDLab team is rolling up their sleeves this year to help governments in Canada and the private sector reduce the barriers to digital identity adoption!
