Ontario Still Plans to Roll Out Digital ID, Even After Scrapping Vaccine Passports

(by Jack Bingham | LifeSite News) – The province of Ontario is still gearing up to launch a robust Digital ID system in “the coming months,” even after Premier Doug Ford announced that he will be axing the QR-code vaccine passport system.

The official Ontario government’s website still boasts about the upcoming arrival of the “voluntary” Digital identification system being launched in the province.

“Digital ID (identification) is an electronic version of trusted government ID that provides better safety, more security and stronger privacy than physical ID cards or documents,” reads the Ontario website, notifying residents the system will be unveiled in the coming months. “It can be securely stored in a digital wallet app for smartphones and other digital devices (like tablets or computers) and will let people and businesses prove who they are both online and in person.”

Calling the upcoming “digital ID” system “the foundation” that will “enable easier access to online services and make Ontario one of the world’s most digitally advanced jurisdictions,” the government states that this new system will allow more “businesses that require customer identification” to “move their services online,” furthering society’s transition from real life into the centralized digital realm.
