Participation in the Canadian Access Federation (CAF)

CAF is Canada’s trust fabric for managing digital identities in higher education and research. At CANARIE, we’re proud to operate CAF and connect Canada to the global web of identity federations.

The universities, colleges, and research facilities that participate in CAF trust CANARIE to authenticate their students’ and faculty’s digital identities among research and education institutions across Canada and around the world.

Research and education institutions that participate in CAF gain access to two services:

  1. eduroam, the global Wi-Fi roaming service
  2. Federated Identity Management (FIM), which lets students & researchers access a global suite of research and learning applications, data, and resources with a single set of credentials.
