Client ID Verification FAQ


eID-Me Digital ID (eID-Me) is a smartphone application created and owned by Bluink, and used to verify and authenticate personal identity and identity documents.

No, eID-Me can only be accessed on a mobile phone.

No. We wanted to give you more flexibility by giving you the option to place your request for ID verification in conjunction with a title insurance policy order, or without; the choice is yours.

Yes, a Canadian ID is needed as a primary document. However, a passport from a foreign country may be used as a secondary document. The following documents are accepted to process the verification:

  • Driver's license, photo ID card or service card issued anywhere in Canada
  • Chip-activated passports issued from the following countries: Canada, USA, France, China, United Kingdom, Malaysia, Morocco, Japan and India
  • Secondary government-issued identity documents include a Canadian permanent resident card, secure certificate of Indian status, FAST and NEXUS cards

Once an eID-Me ID is issued to the smartphone, your customer will always be notified of what information is being requested, and by whom, during a transaction. No information is released unless your customer approves the release. If your customer consents to release information, it will be sent to the requesting third party through the eID-Me identity service. A local, encrypted, record of the transaction is retained within the eID-Me smartphone app for your customer's convenience, which can be erased or disabled at any time. The information your customer releases to these third parties will be governed by their privacy policies and terms.

Invoices for Client ID Verification requests will be issued from FCT and available to download from the ID verification portal. The fees will automatically be added to your FCT account statement.
