About the Event​​

Based on the incredible success of the virtual June Annual Summit we are excited to announce that the IdentityNORTH Fall Symposium will move forward in an online format. As we saw in June, moving online enabled us to connect with a larger audience, build a broader and more engaging agenda and offer additional opportunities to participants.

The two days will be full of presentations by leading identity and digital economy experts from Canada and around the world. The conversation will build on the key topics and discussions had at the Annual Summit, including diversity and inclusion, multi-jurisdictional interoperable digital ID approaches, digital health care, privacy, cybersecurity and governance.

Why Attend IdentityNORTH Events?​​

IdentityNORTH

IdentityNorth was founded on a vision of building a community for the purpose of supporting 3 objectives:

Educate:
Inspire Canadians with a sense of the new opportunities presented by broad adoption of Digital ID as a foundational piece in our lives. We see a huge opportunity to grow our economy by building literacy around Digital ID, privacy, and the emergence of our digital economy.

Connect:
Guide Canadians into a bigger, broader set of discussions, and activities surrounding Digital ID and its applications. The solutions to the challenges and opportunities ahead likely already lie in exploring each other’s ideas, technology, and working together. We can’t work together if we don’t know each other. How better to really know someone than to learn from leaders, engage in lively discussion, explore new ideas and share meals together?

Promote:
Support world-class Canadian companies as they seek to gain profile and access to projects and opportunities across Canada and around the world. We Canadians punch above our weight, contributing seminal work like The 7 Laws of Identity, Privacy by Design, the widely adopted Levels of Assurance, and the Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada. Unfortunately, we often export by exporting our people. IdentityNORTH will help Canadians to share our technology and architectures around the world and, in doing so, to also export our principles to help lead the world. We will help create a globally recognized hub of excellence here in Canada.
