Hi everyone,

I know I'm a bit late to the discussion, but we are looking closely on how
to deal with DIDs, single identifiers, etc., within the Government of
Canada, with other provinces and other countries. We just concluded a 2-day
workshop on this very topic with the major departments and agencies, and
results should be available shortly.

In the meantime (me speaking on behalf of myself), the solution is pretty
straightforward - mapping of identifiers, whether they are centralized,
decentralized, etc. We are formalizing this process as 'identity-linking'
and we already do this with banking credentials, and a soon-to-be-announced
province. DIDs fit into this scheme very nicely.

You can get a preview at this link:

and more material will be going here: https://github.com/canada-ca/PCTF-CCP
