A statement from the Prime Minister’s Office says the partnership is about ‘harnessing the power of the digital space while protecting citizens.’

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced the launch of a digital partnership with the European Union to promote the interoperable use of digital credentials, counter disinformation, and cooperate on artificial intelligence (AI).

Details about the partnership were released Nov. 24 after Mr. Trudeau met with EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and EU Council President Charles Michel in St. John’s, Newfoundland, for a leaders’ summit.

Before the official announcement, Mr. Trudeau said Nov. 23 that the partnership would make a “huge difference” as Canada and the EU “work together to understand the impacts of AI, the impacts of disinformation and misinformation on the social media that people get overwhelmed by in so many ways that tend to exacerbate our challenges.”
