In its annual report on Canada’s digital infrastructure plan, the government has revealed an expansive digital transformation strategy focused on improving “whole-of-government” service delivery. This strategy encompasses the development of a “digital credentials” and identification system.

The “Government of Canada’s Digital Ambition” report was issued in July by the Office of the Chief Information Officer, within the Treasury Board. It offers direction for the government’s strategic approach to data management, security, privacy, and access to information.
The report underscores the challenges faced by Canadians and the government, one of which is asking Canadians in inconsistent ways to provide personal information when accessing various government services, each operating on separate and independent systems. To address this issue, the report recommends adopting a unified government digital platform service delivery model that facilitates data exchange among government agencies.
