WEF Gives Canada Over $100 Million to Create Biometric ‘Digital Identity Project’

The WEF has formally partnered with Canada to create the ‘Known Traveler Digital Identity Project.’

QUICK FACTS:
  • The Canadian government is partnering with the globalist group, the World Economic Forum (WEF) to create a digital identity program.
  • The WEF has given Canada roughly $106 million to launch its Known Traveler Digital Identity Project (KTDI), which some believe will use COVID-19 as justification to launch a digital ID tracking system.
  • Conservative MP Leslyn Lewis exposed the project after she filed an Order of Inquiry with Transportation Minister Omar Alghabra in June.
  • KTDI was originally announced in January 2018 and has not been launched yet.
  • Authorities have claimed that the COVID pandemic caused a delay in the project due to “a shutdown of non-essential travel and, as such, project planning and implementation delays.”
PROJECT DETAILS:
  • Newly released documents from Canada’s transportation minister stated, “This project is based on voluntary contributions from project partners. All project partners are responsible for their respective costs associated with participation. Project partners include: the Government of Canada, the Government of the Netherlands, Air Canada and Royal Dutch airlines, Toronto, Montreal, and Schiphol International Airport, and the World Economic Forum.”
  • The budget for the project is “$105.3 million over five years, starting in 2021-22, with $28.7 million in remaining amortization and $10.2 million per year ongoing to Transport Canada to collaborate with international partners to further advance the KTDI pilot project.”
BACKGROUND:
  • Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been known to collaborate with the WEF in the past, beginning years ago when he met with the Global Shapers Community, which is a youth-based version of the WEF.
  • “Today, I had the privilege of discussing with progressive, energetic, and engaged community leaders and activists from around the world on how they influence the narrative on international diversity. By holding a meaningful dialogue, we are showing the world that these young people understand, as Canada does, that pluralism is the key to building resilient, confident nations around the world,” Trudeau said at the time.
