Thank you, Mr. Chair.
Thank you to our witnesses for joining us.
I'd like to talk about not so much the misplaced records, because it's hard to tell, if x number of records are misplaced for whatever reason, what the net result is.
Can you speak about the frequency of actual breaches, of cases in which somebody has actually used someone else's SIN card or SIN inappropriately?

Would that classify as a deliberate or accidental...? Would it be that someone did it with intent or that it was not intentional?

How often does it happen that things are referred to the RCMP for prosecution?

Is it frequent, infrequent? I know that's a subjective assessment

How are those instances discovered? Does somebody just say that something doesn't look right here, or how do you come across these?

Do you have any idea of the numbers or frequency of people coming to you saying, “I think I've suffered identity theft” and wanting a new one?

That's 1,400 that were referred to the RCMP for further investigation. Is that my understanding?

I understand.
You don't allow it by mail anymore and maybe I missed this, but can somebody apply online for a SIN card?

I just had a new granddaughter on Sunday so we're going through that as we speak.
Again, this may be outside your lane, but are you aware of the level of penalties for identity theft or misuse of SIN cards? I guess my question is if you are, do you think they're adequate? Or should they be looked at ?

From Service Canada's point of view, what would your advice be on how to keep the document secure electronically? I'm also thinking of seniors. Many seniors still keep things in paper form. Do you have any advice, from Service Canada's point of view, on where Canadians should keep their SIN number and on how they should keep it secure?
