Spotlight on Credivera

1. What is the mission and vision of Credivera?

Mission: To bridge the way the world manages personal and professional credentials. We make people’s lives easier, safer, and more productive by seamlessly connecting trustworthy information to where it needs to go.

Vision: Transform the way we provide proof of people, products, and processes.

2. Why is trustworthy digital identity critical for existing and emerging markets?

A global economy requires a shared, trusted framework for understanding that the information we are receiving is true, untampered, and current.

As we look at traditional industries, we see an urgent need to securely share information about an individual that respects both their personal data and the information required for operating a compliant organization.

As these markets interconnect, the skills of a workforce may be hybrid, remote or highly accessible but fundamentally still require a capacity to analyze, assess, and deploy talent associated with an identity based upon their current status.

Digital ID transitions the way we validate skills from subjective to objective, placing an emphasis on the work and removing stereotypes and bias limiting the advancements of new markets.

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

Digital identity will create a common language and roadmap for securely sharing important personal information that honours the individual being in control of their identity. As their identity expands to involve personal and career credentials, the nature of work and repositioning of talent globally becomes a reality.

Canada will be able to attract the talent our industries require, share expertise in emerging geographies, and remove blockages in the way current economic systems operate that require verified identification in a manual way.

Credivera is developing an open, standards-based identity platform that provides proof of certifications and work experience using verified digital credentials. As we build a digital ecosystem of businesses, issuers, and individuals, we are supporting industries to adopt new ways to capacity plan, manage compliance, and identify opportunities for new career and skill development.

4. What role does Canada have to play as a leader in this space?

Canada can be agile and advocate for creating and mandating a shared standard of digital identity among world leaders. Through fundamental systems that enable both public and private trust services people, markets, and personal data can flow faster and more securely.

5. Why did your organization join the DIACC?

As a participant in emerging advancements in digital identity for the government, Credivera learned of the Pan Canadian Trust framework and aligned with DIACC’s initiatives. As a member, we are excited to share knowledge and assist in creating the future of digital identity together.

6. What else should we know about your organization?

Credivera is currently working with the Government of Canada on User Centric Verifiable Credentials, supporting the interoperability of foundational identity documents and will be found on the Microsoft Marketplace in the coming months for their digital Wallet.
