UPDATED TO FIX MINOR ERROR
EDIT: Apparently, they have no yet implemented the federal digital identity program, they’re just telling everyone that they are in the process of doing it and that it’s definitely going to happen. The plan they released is designed to “provide a solid foundation for the ever-evolving digital transformation of government.” [end of edit].
This is part of the World Economic Forum’s Known Traveller Digital Identity (KTDI) initiative. The WEF website names Canada as one of the countries involved with the pilot scheme.
According to the KTDI website, these digital identities will run on blockchain technology.
The KTDI initiative is part of the United Nations’ ID2020 project, which aims to “provide legal identity to all, including birth registration, by 2030.”
And ID2020 is part of the UN’s Agenda 2030 (aka “Sustainable Development Goals”), which is a rebranding of Agenda 21, their long-term, technocratic strategy to reshape our entire planet that was publicly announced in 1992.
Digital identity + Central Bank Digital Currency + AI surveillance tech = CCP-style social credit system.
I summarized all of this about a year ago in my article NWO Agenda Explained, which you should read to get a better idea of the big picture.
