Someone used my Social Insurance number to open a credit card account. Can I get a new number?

  • It’s unlikely the Service Canada will issue a new number for limited identity theft. In fact, it would probably create a new set of problems for you. Remember that your Social Insurance number is connected to your employment, tax, and government benefits. Seeking a new Social Insurance number is only considered in extreme situations.
