BC Ministry of Citizens Services
Verifiable credentials digital trust system for the BC Ministry of Citizen Services

Citizens need a fast, trusted and transparent way to verify if an organization or individual has the appropriate credentials to carry on a business or service. Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of citizen services in this area is key to growing BC’s digital economy.


Quartech was asked to build a solution that leveraged irrefutable blockchain-based services to verify credentials of an organization. The Digital Trust System delivered is a blockchain-based set of open source applications and services that organizations or individuals can use to verify the credentials of others. The BC business registry was the first adopter, and orgbook.gov.bc.ca provides a searchable public directory of open verifiable data about organizations legally registered in BC.
