Thank you very much, Mr. Chair.
I thank all witnesses for appearing before the committee on short notice.
I should mention that I am one of the victims of the data breach at Desjardins, as are many of my constituents.
Ms. Boisjoly, you referred to the online petition asking that the social insurance numbers of those affected be changed. Can you explain to the committee why that would not be done and why it would only complicate things without providing better security for Canadians?

In other words, changing our social insurance number does not necessarily protect our personal information.
Why is another social insurance number issued in cases where fraud has been proven?

Here is a more practical question.
Like everyone in the same situation as myself, I see a risk of fraud. How then can I advise the authorities, whether at Revenue Canada or Service Canada, that my social insurance number may perhaps be used fraudulently? Can I call Service Canada to advise them of that? Is there an internal process that allows the public to do that?

Okay.
The website lists 29 cases in which Canadians are allowed to give out their social insurance numbers. To banking institutions and other entities, for example.
What does Service Canada do so that Canadians know when they should give out their social insurance number and when they should not? What recourse is possible when an organization asks for a social insurance number when it should not do so?
