  24. ENHANCED DRIVER’S LICENSE (EDL) PILOT PROJECT • Secure driver’s license, that denotes citizenship and identity as a cross-border travel option to meet WHTI requirements. • Canadian Conceptual Design developed by federal /provincial working group in December 2006. • Canada will work with BC, DHS and Washington State (and other provinces, territories and states) on development of their DL pilots. • Washington State / British Columbia EDL pilots anticipate a January, 2008 implementation.

  25. WASHINGTON STATE PILOT • Legislation passed by Washington State (WS) supporting enhanced driver’s licenses for cross-border travel. • MOU between Washington State and DHS signed March 23, 2007. • DHS / Washington State EDL Business Plan to be completed by end of April 2007. • Open to WS residents who are U.S. Citizens and wish to obtain a state issued document that denotes citizenship for the purpose of crossing the Canada / U.S. border. • Applicant will appear at WS DL issuing office with documents that denote both identity and citizenship (i.e., passport, birth certificate, etc.).

  26. WASHINGTON STATE PILOT • DL officials will interview applicant to determine document validity, then scan and save these documents. • DL officials use visual and technological checks to determine document authenticity / fraudulency. • If DL officials cannot determine citizenship with confidence, applicant will be referred to the U.S. Department of State to obtain proper citizenship document in order to continue application process. • DL card will contain a Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).

  27. CANADIAN EDL PILOT OVERVIEW • 300 to 500 Canadian citizens to participate • Up to 6 months to run Pilot • EDL(s) issued from a limited number of Provincial driver licensing offices which meet SPP 1.1.3 standards • Citizenship validation undertaken by Provinces; if unable to determine citizenship, client will be required to obtain passport • Card production and issuance occurs after citizenship is validated • Card to meet secure standards, including a MRZ, and a vicinity RFID chip

  28. CANADIAN EDL PILOT OVERVIEW • Participant information sent to CBSA by secure channel. • EDL card info to be shared with DHS/CBP for entry to U.S. • CBSA will process EDL documents using current border processes, statistics can be collected for use in evaluation.

  29. ENHANCED DRIVER’S LICENSE (EDL) PROVINICIAL PILOT PROJECT Application, Validation and Issuance of EDL - Provincial DL Authority Citizenship Validation • Application Process • Voluntary travel option • Additional fee for EDL • Foundation documents provided are visually inspected for legitimacy • Citizens born in pilot jurisdiction to be interviewed and foundation documents validated against provincial vital statistics • All other Canadians to have their citizenship validated through document review and in-depth interview • Where citizenship cannot be determined, applicant must obtain passport • Card Issuance/Status • SPP compliant card produced at card production facility • Issued and sent to applicant by secure mail • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) • ICAO compliant MRZ • Participant information to be sent to CBSA and DHS using secure process Use of EDL at Port of Entry Canadian EDL Reference List* • DHS • RFID processing of documents • Collection, storage and use of pilot participant’s (both U.S. and Canadian) personal information • Collection of passage records and statistics related to enhanced DL document usage • CBSA • EDL can be presented at any Canadian border crossing • Periodic collection of existing CBSA passage records provides statistics related to enhanced DL document usage for evaluation Canadian EDL Reference List and Personal Information for RFID • Note: • *EDL reference list to include information associated to each individual, their document and possibly their vehicle • Documents presented with application to be scanned and retained by province (TBD) • GoC involvement will be kept to a minimum. • There will be no documentary requirements for entry to Canada • There will be no RFID processing of documents upon entry to Canada • Absence of a functional inter-jurisdictional information exchange (no NRS) to assist in validation of citizenship Process Flow Process & Information Sharing

  30. ENHANCED DRIVER’S LICENSE (EDL) PILOT PROJECT Next Steps: • Continue development of necessary policy, evaluation, privacy and legal frameworks • Work with provinces to develop a Canadian EDL business model • Secure any necessary funding • Ensure Canadian business model has DHS support • Work with provinces to develop implementation plans for pilots • Evaluation
