Step 1: Log in with your existing GCKey or Sign-In Partner.
If you do not have a GCKey or Sign-In Partner then you will need to register for a GCKey during the new login process.
Please do not share your GCKey or Sign-In Partner credentials with anyone else.
Important: Please wait until July 20 before registering for a GCKey or Sign-In Partner. You will need to complete the registration during your first sign-in once the new login process is in effect.
What is GCKey?
GCKey is a simple way to securely access Government of Canada online services. Your GCKey can be used to access multiple Government of Canada Online Services. For more information, visit the GCKey help page.
If you choose this option, sign in with your GCKey username and password. If you do not have a GCKey account, you must create one by providing a username, a password and password recovery questions.
What is Sign-In Partner?
You can access government services by using your online banking credentials or a Sign-In Partner participating in the Interac® sign-in service.
If you choose this option, sign in using your chosen Sign-In Partner. You will temporarily go to your Sign-In Partner's site. Once you are signed in, you will be redirected back to the service you initially selected. Your Sign-In Partner will not know which government service you are using.
None of your banking or personally identifiable information (for ex., financial, banking) will be shared with the government services you are accessing, ISED or Corporations Canada.
Step 2: Complete the setup of your new My ISED Account if necessary.
If you have never signed in to a My ISED account with GCKey or Sign-In Partner, you will need to complete the setup of your new My ISED Account
What is my ISED Account?
The My ISED Account provides a single secure, digital service window or account, based on your online profile, to access all of ISED's online services, using one set of login credentials: your GCKey, or your Sign-in Partner.
To complete your ISED Account, you will be asked to enter your personal information, including:
- first and last name
- email address
- phone number
