BCeID Authentication Service

For over a decade, user accounts from the BCeID service have been the government’s standard approach to identity authentication.

Individuals or users representing businesses and organizations can access online government services using their BCeID username and password.

Other benefits include:

Accessibility for your clients: Individuals outside BC can use BCeID user accounts.

Accessibility for businesses: BCeID accounts can be used by representatives from businesses in B.C. and other provinces.

Low to medium identity assurance: BCeID is used for transactions where you need low or medium assurance of a person's identity, like when someone signs up for a newsletter or fishing licence.

Please note: We recommend the BC Services Card for online services that require a high assurance of a B.C. citizen’s identity.
