Meet Gambit

Make the world a safer place by offering innovative, efficient, and easy-to-use biometric solutions, while providing renowned customer service.

It can allow much more online activity if you can really trust someone’s identity, thereby making various transactions more convenient and safer for all citizens.

3. How will digital identity transform the Canadian and global economy? How does Gambit address challenges associated with this transformation? 

It can eliminate the need to rely as much on physical documents that in themselves can be forged or become unreliable. It can allow data to be shared in ways that are safe while at the same time making things more flexible and convenient.

We are addressing the challenges associated with this change by providing solutions related to biometrics that can be used as part of many digital identify use cases. We are also working to integrate with other Digital Identity partners to enhance our current product offerings.

Canada needs to:

  • Set the policies on sharing of data and privacy for all of its citizens

  • Make sure procurement processes are agile
  • Have an identity strategy this includes Government of Canada employees
