Inter-jurisdictional Identity Management and Authentication Task Force, A Pan-Canadian Strategy for Identity Management and Authentication (July 2007) (full-text).
This report provides a strategy, recommendations and action plan for implementing a pan-Canadian Identity Management and Authentication (IdM&A) Framework that will facilitate client-centred, cross-jurisdictional, multi-channel service delivery for citizens and businesses. The strategy’s value to the government is that it provides a framework for cross-jurisdictional collaboration and cooperation with respect to the use of common identification elements and authentication.
In addition to a decreased risk that services will be compromised, the value to citizens can be described as multi-faceted. There will be improved security of personal identity and identification documents as well as increased efficiency in processing and authenticating identification.
