The virtual verification of identity without authentication – permitted as a temporary emergency measure – will end on December 31, 2023. Effective January 1, 2024 the Law Society of Ontario’s new virtual verification requirements will come into effect.

How should lawyers and paralegals assess the authenticity of government issued photo identification? Are there ways to authenticate without physically being in the same room? What actions should be taken to comply with the new LSO requirements?

Hear from Matthew Wilson, lawyer at Siskinds LLP, as he answers these questions and explains the upcoming changes to ensure that you are in compliance come the new year.
