Exclamation HRSDC lost personal information of 500,000 people

So has anyone been affected by this mess?

Human Resorurces and Skills Development Canada had an employee missplace an external portable hard drive containing first/last names, mailing address, birth date, student loan amount, Social Insurance Number

If you haven't received a letter fromk HRSDC they are advising that you still call them and reconfirm.

1-866-885-1866 or

416-572-1113


Serious matter at hand folks!

Just so you guys know it was a USB stick!
Happened on December 6, 2012
Containing information from year 2000 - 2006

I would suggest affected people contact lawyers, and see what your options are.

I wouln't be suprised if theres a big class action lawsuit
