Conspiracy Theorists are now 17-0. Vaccine Passports sounded terrible so they changed the name to Digital ID.
‘This made-for-Canada framework enables the development of an adaptable infrastructure that will make the Canadian digital ID ecosystem more resilient to future crises.’
Under Premier Scott Moe, Saskatchewan has become one of the leading provinces in Canada seeking to adopt a nationally-regulated digital identification system. Saskatchewan has been enrolled in the Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) since early 2020.
According to the DIACC website, “Saskatchewan joined the DIACC because we recognize that if we are going to realize the potential of digital ID, we need to define and govern digital identity nationally, with private and public sector collaboration.”
According to the DIACC mission statement, “The vision of the Saskatchewan Public Service is to be the best public service in Canada. We support Saskatchewan’s vision: to be the best place in Canada — to live, to work, to start a business, to get an education, to raise a family and to build a life,” adding that the organization is “dedicated to service excellence, innovation, collaboration and transparency” and will “practice effective and accountable use of resources.” read
China plans digital version of national identification card later this year, premier says
China is to roll out a digital version of its national identity card that residents can store and access on their smartphone across the whole country “this year”, the Chinese premier Li Keqiang has told a press briefing.
Premier Li Keqiang announced on Friday that the Chinese government would introduce a digital version of the national identification card this year, enabling better government services for an increasingly cyber-savvy population.
Speaking at the annual briefing at the end of the National People’s Congress, Li said one aim was to better meet the “basic living needs concerning daily lives” of more than 100 million citizens who lived away from their home province.
He said: “Some are elderly people living away from their hometown with their children in the other cities, some are there for jobs and education. They have to run back and forth to get things done. So getting things done interprovincially has become a new constant demand for the Chinese people.”
