After Transport Canada said last year it was “committed” to closing a digital identity pilot project for air travel, Transport Minister Pablo Rodriguez is now saying it never got off the ground.

The department “officially ended its participation in the Known Traveller Digital Identity, or KTDI, project in April 2023,” Mr. Rodriguez said June 19 in the House of Commons. “The KTDI Project never launched.”
KTDI is one of several initiatives from the World Economic Forum (WEF) that Canada has participated in. The WEF gathers word leaders from politics and industry to implement its agenda.

The project involved the Dutch government, airports in Canada and the Netherlands, airlines Air Canada and KLM, and services firm Accenture.
