The Pan-Canadian Master Terminology Worksheet (MTW) is an excel spreadsheet that provides links between the messaging artifacts and all of the terminologies in use within the different domains of the pan-Canadian electronic health record (EHR).
The MTW is a compilation of the recommended terminologies and value sets from Infoway sponsored investment projects. The purpose of the content in our pan-Canadian standards is to support the interoperable EHR at both the pan-Canadian and jurisdictional level. Examples of some of the terminologies found in the MTW include: HL7, ISO, and SNOMED CT.

Canadian Draft for Use (CDFU) - The standard has been developed but it may or may not be implemented or be in use. The standard is considered ready to be used by early adopters: however, change is probable as stakeholders begin using the standard in implementations.
Canadian Approved Standards (CAS) - The standard is in use for the purpose(s) or context(s) for which it was intended. Only those parts of the standard that have been implemented or are in use can progress for consideration as CAS. This decision point signifies that the standard has reached a level of stability and is comprehensive enough such that major changes are not expected.
