Pan-Canadian Trust Framework™ Notice & Consent


The objective of the Notice and Consent Component is to ensure the on-going integrity of both the notice and consent processes by applying standardized conformance criteria for assessment and certification. A process that has been so certified is a trusted process that can be relied on by other participants of the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework™ (PCTF). The PCTF conformance criteria are intended to complement existing privacy legislation and regulations; participants in the digital identity ecosystem are expected to comply with relevant privacy legislation and regulations in their jurisdictions.
