The CANImmunize Story

Instead of using paper records to track your vaccinations, what if you could track them on your phone? A mother posed this question to Dr. Kumanan Wilson, a physician-researcher at The Ottawa Hospital, in an Ottawa park one day in 2011. This informal chat was the spark that grew into the CANImmunize app, created by Dr. Wilson and McGill engineering student Cameron Bell, which launched first in Ontario as ImmunizeON the following year. Read the article here.

The app later rolled out across the country as ImmunizeCA, with funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada. In 2016, it became CANImmunize, a digital platform that connects Canadians to their own vaccination records, sends reminders about when to be vaccinated and more.  

Then COVID-19 hit and the world scrambled to pivot to a new reality. CANImmunize was ready.

Recently spun out as a technology company specializing in immunization software, CANImmunize created solutions to help with the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Nova Scotia, Yukon and Prince Edward Island. Our team now provides digital solutions to business, government, health care and other partners to meet emerging needs for digital COVID-19 immunization tracking and verification while maintaining the popular public app.
