Trust framework is a general term to describe a set of auditable business, technical, and legal rules that apply to the identification, authentication, and authorization of accessing resources across organizations.
The Pan-Canadian Trust Framework (PCTF) enables Canada’s full and secure participation in the global digital economy through economic sector innovation and the enablement of modernized digital service delivery. The PCTF supports open government principles.
The PCTF is an economic benefit focused set of identity standards that is developed in collaboration, published by the DIACC, and benefits from the broad federal, provincial and territorial input of the Joint Councils Identity Management Subcommittee (IMSC).
The PCTF describes the roles, services, and requirements to be agreed on between participating service delivery and commercial industry sector organizations, to meet current and future Canadian innovation needs. The PCTF leverages the digital identity ecosystem principles listed in this document.
Release details: Components of the PCTF will be released in a phased approach. The evolutionary view of the PCTF components is below and is subject to change.
