​IdentityNORTH Fall Symposium 2022

About the Event​​

Join us for IdentityNORTH’s 2022 Fall Symposium on October 26, 2022 in Ottawa, Ontario for an exclusive view of the Future of Pan-Canadian Digital Governments.

The main questions for this series will be:
→ Where are Canadian governments compared to governments around the world.
→ How do we get them where we would like them to be?

Over the course of the day, you’ll have the chance to listen to, but also be a part of the conversations that are driving change in digital governments. We encourage you to join in as we tackle some of the most pressing questions facing our sector, businesses, and communities in Canada today.

Speaker Submissions for this event are now open.

Have someone in mind who you’d like to be a part of the conversation? Enter your submission here to help shape the agenda.

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 decentralized Digital ID as a foundational piece in our lives. We see a huge opportunity to grow our economy by building literacy around decentralized Digital ID, privacy, and the emergence of our digital economy.

Connect:
Guide Canadians into a bigger, broader set of discussions, and activities surrounding decentralized 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 decentralized 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.
