Digital Identity Transformation Pillars

DIACC initiatives address the priorities of Canadian government and economic sectors by advancing trustworthy digital identity and related services as critical enablers of Canada’s modernization of digital services delivery and participation in the global digital economy.

The Prime Minister calls upon the orders of Canadian government and economic sectors to address three critical pillars as critical to Canada’s participation in the digital transformation:

The DIACC has adopted 10 principles for the Canadian digital identity ecosystem to guide our work. To secure Canada’s full and beneficial participation in the digital economy at home and abroad, DIACC members have the benefit of collaboratively developing and establishing:

  • the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework;
  • innovative proofs of concept real-world solutions;
  • informative research and reports.

We invite leaders from all sectors to join the DIACC to shape Canadian digital identity innovations.

The digital transformation is commonly described as “the changes associated with the application of digital technology in all aspects human society.”

This definition illustrates the connection between “digital technology” and “all aspects of human society.” Predictable and trustworthy connections between people, entities and things are foundational elements that support a thriving society.

Identity is an enabler of beneficial and predictable relationship connections in the real and digital worlds. The digital identity transformation represents the innovations, technology, policy, and practices that address digital identity as the enabler connecting people, entities, and things.

Addressing the needs of the digital transformation requires trustworthy digital identity and access management to enable nearly every aspect of the application of digital technologies to society.

Governments and economic sectors around the world are developing digital transformation strategies to address local jurisdictional priorities as well as to ensure that the “next billion” persons in under developed regions, both at home and abroad, are able to get connected in a way that respects their local sovereignty, rights, and cultures.
