IDENTOS announces expansion to Western Canada

IDENTOS, headquartered in Toronto continues to grow as it expands to Western Canada and welcomes BC Identity Information Management (IDIM) Director as Vice President, Western Canada.

IDENTOS Inc., a leader in digital identity and access management, today announced that Jason Owens has been appointed to the role of VP, Western Canada, effective immediately.

As the demand for digital identity solutions in healthcare and government continues to grow, IDENTOS expands its reach by extending resources to Western Canada. The company continues to bring its technology solutions and services to solve identity and access control gaps, enabling the safe integration of sensitive customer information for organizations.

As part of this expansion, Jason Owens joins the executive team as the new Vice President of Western Canada to better service clients and the market in the region.  Jason is an accomplished Senior IT leader with over twenty years of experience in service delivery in both the private and public sectors, with key skills in the digital identity space, service design, change management and implementation of complex projects.  Most recently as a Director for the province of British Columbia’s Identity Information Management (IDIM) Program, Jason will be instrumental in supporting IDENTOS’ growth through Western Canada.

With successful implementations already underway in the region, such as TrustSphere – an innovative healthcare stack at BC Children’s Hospital, delivering integrated digital care and research access for children living with Type 1 diabetes – IDENTOS is well positioned to continue providing solutions for problems that have already been validated in the region. 

“After a number of successful implementations across Canada, we are proud to expand to help solve similar challenges and help organizations leverage their existing assets into trusted digital ecosystems.  We are excited to have Jason Owens on board as he leads IDENTOS in its next phase of growth.  We are confident he will carry IDENTOS’ vision to provide a safer way for citizens to share information online.” Joe Mayer, Chief Revenue Officer, IDENTOS

I am excited to be taking on this new role to support the expansion of IDENTOS’ proven technology in Western Canada and beyond. By leveraging the best-in-class digital identity capabilities already present in Western Canada, IDENTOS is well positioned to expand that ecosystem in a trustworthy way, and ensure people have access to the privacy-enhancing, user-centric identity and access solutions they need to interact with Canada’s digital economy.” –Jason Owens, VP, Western Canada, IDENTOS

IDENTOS currently has over 60 employees amongst its 4 offices in: Toronto, Canada; Bad Aibling, Germany; New York, US; and now Victoria, Canada.
