It is with great gratitude and enthusiasm that we share with you some excellent news for IDLab.

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!

That's what they say ;-)

“The Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada continues to advance the country’s digital identity ecosystem through persistent advocacy of compliance and interoperability. This collaboration spurred between the private and public sectors has allowed providers and partners to work together and accelerate the understanding and adoption of digital identity across Canada.

These developments have been crucial with the increase of remote work and the importance of safe online transactions. Canadians need methods to trust online verifications to the same degree as in-person transactions, and the Lab plays a major role in allowing organizations to evaluate and adopt these solutions.

We are proud to be a sponsor of the Lab. Working alongside them to expand Verified.Me’s interoperability with international standards and improve the digital lives of Canadians has been an inspiring experience, and we are excited for what this beneficial partnership will continue to have in store for the future.”
