For Canadians who are anxiously waiting to get in on the mobile payment action, that day just got a little closer. Today at a Toronto Tim Hortons restaurant, CIBC and Rogers demonstrated the first ever Canadian mobile payment using their SecureTap system. We learned a few weeks back that Canadian carriers would be using RIM’s secure element manager on their mobile payment applications, and that is definitely where some of the magic is coming from here. This software will be on BlackBerry smartphones as well as Android and Windows 8 in the coming months.

At the Toronto Tim Horton’s location Rogers and CIBC used none other than a BlackBerry Bold 9900 to demonstrate this leap in mobile payment technology. The service will only be available at select locations, but more will be rolling out as time progresses.

Current list of locations:

  • Subway
  • Second Cup
  • Harvey’s
  • Green P Parking
  • Swiss Chalet
  • Quizno’s
  • Shopper’s Drugmart
  • Tim Horton’s
  • Timothy’s Coffee
  • Indigo (Manulife center)
  • Cineplex Odeon (Manulife Centre)
  • McDonald’s
  • Toronto Parking Authority
  • Hero Burg
  • as well as Visa payWave and MasterCard PayPass locations

So, some of you Canadians out there may be asking just when you can get your hands on this, and that’s simple. The BlackBerry application will be made available on the BlackBerry Bold 9900, BlackBerry Curve 9360, but only for Rogers Wireless and CIBC banking customers. The application will be available for download in BlackBerry App World starting on November 16th.
