Today’s budget announcement keeps the importance of secure and privacy protecting digital ID in our windows and more work needs to be done to develop this path based on citizen consent, control, and trust. We look forward to collaborating with the government on consultations to support these imperative next steps while finding ways to combat misinformation that surrounds it.
This report looks at Transborder use of digital identity in the context of international transfer, control, and access to private/personal data between Canada and the European Union. In particular, it looks at such data transfer considering the obligation to inform individuals during data processing and investigate into the adequacy of transparency and notice for international data transfer.
Establishing a trusted digital ID will allow people and organizations the choice to verify themselves online securely, while protecting personal information with no user traceability. It offers a decentralized, privacy-enhancing solution for both the private and public sectors.
a framework that Digital Identity Ecosystem Participants can use to assess the degree to which the digital wallets that are part of their respective ecosystems accomplish the following:
This Directory is designed to provide an overview of providers’ solutions which use government issued photo identification cards, combined with biometric facial scans, to establish Digital Identity.
Built on standards: OAuth 2.0 and JWT

It is essential that Participants in a digital ecosystem have a way to evaluate the robustness and trustworthiness of transactions within that ecosystem. In order to do so, Participants must share a common vocabulary that describes the level of confidence they can associate with an Entity or transaction, as well as a common way in which to determine that level of confidence.
The Authentication component of the DIACC Pan-Canadian Trust Framework™ specifies processes and conformance criteria for service providers. Authentication and credential management services may be assessed against these criteria.
This report discusses what the identity verification related requirements for the creation and management of agri-food products (or items) unique identifiers to enable provenance tracking, ensure traceability, facilitate agri-food data integration, enhance governance, protect privacy and confidentiality, inform policies, and improve communications.
The intent of the DIACC Industry Survey was to identify any pain points Canadian industries have that prevent the use of trusted Digital Identity.
The intent of the Infrastructure (Technology & Operations) component is to identify the operational policies, plans, technology and technology operations requirements to support implementation of the principles of the PCTF Profiles in the context of a Digital Identity Ecosystem.
The DIACC, Canada’s digital ID leader, is pleased to see the federal government’s recognition that our economic future depends on digital investments. Initiatives like the investment in the Known Traveller Digital Identity pilot project and the Canada Digital Adoption Program will help Canadians, businesses and governments on this path.
A few highlights from the report:
DIACC has joined the collaborative led by Standards Council of Canada
Making sure we have a common way to evaluate and measure the integrity of that data is central to a
To realize a world-class Digital Government Canada has set itself an ambition of:
“Digitize all public-facing government services so they are accessible by web and mobile phone and available behind a unified login system by 2025.”
The intent of this DIACC Industry Survey is to identify any pain points Canadian industries have that prevent the use of trusted Digital Identity frameworks. This survey will be open indefinitely with responses monitored regularly.

Today, more than ever before, our communities, our businesses, and our citizens are looking to the leaders within the DIACC to help deliver a robust, secure, trusted digital ID ecosystem that works for all Canadians. Our economy depends on it,” stated David Nikolejsin, Chair of the DIACC Board.
SecureKey Technologies entered into a multiphase program with DIACC and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) to evaluate, develop, and deliver a solution for enabling distributed privacy enhanced identity ecosystems. This paper summarizes the work done as part of Phase 3 of the program, concentrating on the “Commercialization of the Verified.Me project”
