Yes, in spring 2017 RULA joined the Canada-wide consortium ORCID-CA, which includes over 30 Canadian institutions and continues to grow. Membership is jointly paid by RULA and the Ryerson University Office for Research. For more information on the ORCID-CA consortium, visit their website.
There are many benefits to the consortium, including access to the Premium Membership API, the ability to integrate ORCID into existing Ryerson University systems and workflows, and centralized member support. You can read more about the benefits on the ORCID-CA website.
At this point no, though we are working on it!
