Canadian Identity Forum to Host Ottawa Event on "Enhanced" Drivers' License

| March 14, 2009

The Canadian Identity Forum - a partnership of researchers and privacy advocates - will host a national public forum on “enhanced” drivers licences (EDLs), privacy and state surveillance under the new Canada-U.S. border regime. These new licences raise important civil liberties and privacy-related concerns, as they include radio-frequency identification (RFID) and biometric capabilities.

  • When: March 24, 2009 from 9:00 to 12:15
  • Where: Ottawa Library Auditorium, 120 Metcalfe
