How to protect your SIN number
Protecting your Social Insurance Number (SIN) is very important because it can be used to obtain personal information and invade your privacy. Identity theft and other types of fraud can result from not securing your SIN. To prevent this from happening, there are numerous ways to protect your SIN such as only providing your SIN when it is legally required, storing your SIN in a safe place, or taking immediate measures to protect your SIN when you suspect someone else has been using it.
