Canadian Biometric ID Documents

CANADIAN BIOMETRIC ID DOCUMENTS: A Public Forum Thursday June 15, Toronto.
6:45-10:00 PM ET

The possibility of having some form of biometric ID document in Canada has been in the news again recently. What is being considered? What are the implications of different options? The Canadian government has said little about what it is planning. Join us in person or online to hear the experts, to ask questions, and to make your views heard.

This forum includes a live, interactive webcast. See our website for more details about the forum and the issues.
