Global non-profit Open Identity Exchange (OIX) has partnered with Canada-based non-profit Digital ID Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC).


OIX serves as a global community focusing on identity management, supporting collaboration and providing guidance for trusted and interoperable identities across different platforms. DIACC, similarly influential in Canada, promotes user-centric design principles and verifies private sector services against the Pan-Canadian Trust Framework (PCTF) to support a secure digital ecosystem. 

The main goal of this partnership is to explore and compare country-based policies related to identity management, verification, security, data privacy, and digital identity assurance. The aim is to facilitate quick progress towards global digital ID interoperability by aligning or accepting policy differences across jurisdictions.
