Making a Correction Request
You can only request a correction if it concerns your personal information and you want to:
- change information because it is incorrect or incomplete;
- have information destroyed, if that information cannot legally be collected, disclosed or kept.
You do not have to make a correction request to change your:
- first and last name;
- date of birth;
- social insurance number;
- civil status.
To make these changes, contact our client services. This is usually faster than making a correction request.
If your correction request is about your tax file or access to My Account for individuals, contact our client services.
If your request is about your address, click Change of Address.
If you decide to make a correction request, it must contain at least three of the following so that we can identify you:
- your full name;
- your address;
- the number on the last notice of assessment you received;
- a daytime phone number.
Please also provide a copy of a document supporting the requested correction (passport, birth certificate, etc.).
Some personal information such as your social insurance number should never be sent by unsecured email.
Send your correction request in writing to the attention of Mario Jean, who is in charge of access to information.
