Providing your social insurance number (SIN) is not mandatory, however it does help us with the application process. Your social insurance number is a unique number, it helps us to identify you quickly and efficiently and is a good way to make sure information provided to us in a credit bureau report actually refers to you.
If we have your social insurance number, we may use it for tax related purposes if you hold a product generating income and share it with the appropriate government agencies, and we may also share it with credit reporting agencies as an aid to identify you.
However, providing your social insurance number as part of this application process is voluntary for you.
