Re: SaskTel Under Privacy Investigation

Yes you have the right to refuse as does bell or whoever have the right to refuse service for your cellphone plan or whatever because you refused to show SIN card.Its called a credit check and done everywhere...BUT in ONT it is illegal to ask for a healthcard number.Even different gov departments except for MOT are not allowed to ask for it.

But you may freely offer it, even at ServiceOntario offices.

No. Service can't be denied because of it. Maybe if there is some big ticket item you are buying on credit or something that requires it. Otherwise, no.

Service can't be denied. Do you see the resellers asking for it (Ebox excluded).

Even when Cogeco was asking for it, and denying services to some people Cogeco then came out, back-peddled, and said no services will be denied if you don't give SIN. They stated this in the forums here.

SIN is not an ID card. Which is what these companies are doing. Nor should the be storing this info.

Link is there for you to see.
