The Canadian Visa vendor Home Trust has selected Gemalto to manage its migration to EMV smart payment cards. Up until now the company has supplied only magnetic strip payment cards. With the support of Gemalto, Home Trust will begin issuing the new cards through pilot programs in Ontario.
The hope of Home Trust is to completely covert to the EMV. The selection of Gemalto comes with microprocessor payment cards as well as data preparation and personalization. In addition Gemalto is providing training on EMV conversion to Home Trust associates.
