On July 1st, 2019 the new Treasury Board Directive on Identity Management (DIDM) went into effect, 10 years to the day when it was first issued under the revised Policy on Government Security back on July 1, 2009.

- The Pan-Canadian Trust Framework Using Prolog
A ‘declarative framework’ (such as Prolog) focuses on the ‘what’ needs to be done, satisfied, relied on (i.e., proven to be true) versus ‘how to do it.’ In our case, with the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework (PCTF), it’s the question of ‘Can we rely on or accept a digital identity originating from a province or territory?’
