That's what they say ;-)

“We see the work of the Digital Identity Laboratory of Canada as crucial to advancing Canada’s economy through the development of secure, trusted digital capabilities. In order to successfully deliver digital ID it will be necessary to ensure there is alignment between the public and private sectors. By working to bring these groups together and forge solutions, the IDLab can help to support an inclusive and safe online environment for Canadians to exchange value based on common standards and foundational capabilities.”
