TORONTO, Canada, Oct. 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –On October 7, 2022, the Canadian government said it had spent $54 million on the ArriveCan app, which lets travellers upload their required health information for COVID-19 measures. Many of the top people in Canada’s tech industry were surprised at how much the government charged for development. Over the weekend, Toronto-based digital innovation lab TribalScale held a free hackathon to rebuild ArriveCan. The point was to show how good Canada’s tech community is.

Sheetal Jaitly, the CEO of TribalScale, said, “Our group wanted to use this as an opportunity to make changes. The goal was to show how smart and skilled the Canadian tech community is and to give the Canadian government a new way to find and buy technology services.
The hackathon for TribalScale was over on October 10, 2022. The team was able to make the ArriveCan app again after two days of hard work. It will put out the git and have a full demo tomorrow afternoon. Watch this short video to see what has been built so far. TribalScale was able to offer the following features:
- How to get started
- I made it possible to upload travel papers.
- People with traveller accounts can now add more traveller profiles.
- Let travellers save their information for future trips.
- Being able to fill out forms is important (approximately a dozen questions).
- Being able to put in trip details Integration of an API for a list of possible airports They made a place where travellers could scan their passport or PR card and add their information. A list of links to traveller resources
The Canadian Technology Consortium is also being set up by TribalScale. “We’re putting together this group of digital leaders to help the Canadian government at all levels and in all parts of the country with any digital questions they may have now or in the future. Let’s make it easier for our government to use money and get things done with digital tools. “We want Canadian tech leaders to apply right away,” Jaitly said.
This group will get together for the first time on October 14 at 7:45 a.m. Jaitly told us, “We hope that this resource will help all levels of government in Canada for a long time to come. TribalScale’s goal is to “Right the Future,” and this is another way we can help make that happen.
