Canada’s CIO Strategy Council has published a new national digital ID standard

The publication was prepared by experts in privacy and security from across Canada. It specifies the minimum requirements identity solutions must meet in order to ensure user trust.

“Increasingly, organizations are needing to assert and consume digital identity with trust and confidence, for the purposes of delivering products or services.”

The standard applies to all organizations, across the public and private sectors. As well as digital trust and identity, the CIO Strategy Council has produced guidance around data protection, ethical design, and third party data access.

It codifies state of the art thinking as an official Canadian standard and aims to accelerate the adoption of the Pan Canadian Trust Framework in Canada, while providing needed flexibility for Canadian businesses exporting products and services globally
