Celero joins Canadian Digital Identity and Authentication Council to enable credit unions to lead in a digital economy

May 20, 2020
Celero is pleased to announce its membership in the Digital Identity and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC), a non-profit coalition of public and private sector organizations seeking to develop a robust framework to solve the real-world challenges of digital identity and enable Canada’s success in the digital economy. 

As a member of the DIACC, Celero will be an advocate and a representative for the credit union system as we participate in the development of a strategy and ecosystem to offer Canadians choice, control and convenience in an increasingly digital-first society.

“The DIACC is setting Canada on the path to have an innovative, secure and verifiable digital identity and authentication structure that will ultimately drive economic growth and benefit businesses and consumers,” says Len Hendricks, Chief Technology Officer at Celero, and our representative on the DIACC.

“By joining this Council, Celero will help shape the framework with the credit union perspective, seek out the potential use cases and applications that can benefit our clients and their members, and contribute to the DIACC’s goals through our expertise in financial technology and cyber security.”

The DIACC intends for the framework to be adopted by Canadian governments and businesses to create an interconnected system that will improve verifiability and protections for digital identity. The DIACC is also focused on ensuring Canada’s full participation in the global digital economy, developing an innovation agenda and modernizing digital service delivery.
