Using Digital ID
We’re working hard to help government create a “Digital Society” with citizens and businesses in New Brunswick at the centre of everything we do. Digital ID is an initiative of the Digital New Brunswick Strategy.
"Digital ID will soon open to all citizens of New Brunswick. To make sure we get it right, it's available by invite only as we conduct a few pilot projects with the support of some exceptional partners."
