Thank you for your question.
As you know, the social insurance number is one identifier among many. As we have already mentioned, on our website, we are advising citizens that they should only give their social insurance number in very limited circumstances. This is explained to them. We tell them not to give their social insurance numbers to organizations that cannot legally request them. However, from what we hear, citizens often give it voluntarily to organizations that are not authorized to take it.
We are certainly aware of the discussions. We are still looking at what we can do to improve the protection of our systems and practices related to the social insurance number.
We want to hear the recommendations or see the report that this committee will publish, as well as other reports.
I can assure you that work on improving the security of our systems is ongoing. I know that Treasury Board is also very actively working on digital identity projects. We are participating in these discussions to see how we can improve the digital identity of citizens in Canada.
