We are very excited to announce that CertifiO, its trusted digital signature solution, has been selected by the Manitoba Association of Architects (MAA) to provide safe and secure options for digital seals, to reduce the risk of fraud in addition to prevent illegal practice.
This new partnership consolidates our presence in Canada in the field of architecture.
Judy Pestrak, the executive Director of the MAA explains, “As the profession continues to move forward and embrace the opportunities afforded through an every expanding electronic environment, it becomes much more critical to seek viable solutions that can appropriately address the necessary public protection, by mitigating the risk of potential fraud and/or illegal practice; and it is clear that the Notarius system for a digital signature best responds, in the level of reliability and assurance that it provides.”.
A leading expert in electronic signatures, digital signatures, and long-term document reliability since 1998, Notarius is the only Canadian firm that issues trusted signatures recognized by Adobe (Adobe Approved Trust List – AATL) and eIDAS (electronic IDentification Authentication and trust Services). Notarius’ digital signature solutions are currently recognized and used by 40 professional associations across Canada, allowing thousands of professionals to sign and authenticate electronic documents with the same legal value as hand-signed paper documents.
The Manitoba Association of Architects (MAA) is a self-governing professional association, mandated by the Province of Manitoba under The Architects Act. Its objects and powers are to promote and increase, by all lawful means, the knowledge, skill and proficiency of its members and to regulate the practice of architecture in Manitoba, in the interest of the public and safety.
