FIM-Enabled Services

To broaden their reach and simplify access to their services, leading providers of resources and content for the research and higher education community participate in the Canadian Access Federation (CAF) and enable their services for Federated Identity Management (FIM). Canadian students, staff, and faculty can securely access these services from anywhere in the world, using their home credentials.

If you offer services to the higher education and research sector, we invite you to join the Canadian Access Federation (CAF). Our team will work with you to FIM-enable your service(s).

If you’re a CAF participant and would like to FIM-enable a service, please contact us at [email protected] to get started.
