Reporting fraud, abuse or misuse

Service Canada takes abuse of the programs it delivers very seriously. When an individual or business receives benefits by providing false or misleading information, the integrity of the programs we deliver is jeopardized.

When you report someone who may be committing benefit fraud, you are helping us protect your contributions to the Employment Insurance (EI) program and the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

When you report abuse or misuse of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP), you are also helping to protect the integrity of TFWP and the Canadian labour market.Protecting your identity is another way you can help prevent fraud. If you know about someone who may be using a false identity or a false Social Insurance Number (SIN), let us know right away.
