Driving Economic Growth by Securing Canadian Identity Interoperability
- The Pan-Canadian Trust Framework, Open Banking, and the Rise of Networks for Identity
Identity for the economy is broken. Canadians need to know what identity exists about them online. Businesses and governments need rules and tools to provide Canadians with context, consent, and control to share data for a specific purpose and a specific time. Verification of people, organizations, and relationships holds the key to supercharging Identity Relationship Management. No single entity can enable an identity ecosystem that is secure, privacy-enhancing, and convenient to use. A "village" strategy is required to solve challenges and leverage opportunities. The Pan-Canadian Trust Framework will set guidance that has the potential to unlock interoperability the unique capabilities of businesses and governments for use by citizen-consumers. While the framework is one piece of the solution, businesses and governments must respond to our call to action to do the transformative work needed to advance identity that grows socioeconomic opportunities for all. In this meet up we'll discuss the risks of "going it alone" and the benefits of the "village strategy" to achieve our vision.
We will have food and drinks, and the opportunity to mingle and debate. And please bring your questions for Joni!
