Equifax Canada’s Response to Ontario's Human Trafficking Bill

Bill 41, Protection from Coerced Debts Incurred in relation to Human Trafficking Act, 2022

"Human trafficking impacts millions worldwide, and Canada, sadly, is not immune. We can all do a part to support victims. At Equifax Canada, we commit to supporting financial recovery for human trafficking survivors who have had their credit damaged when loans were opened in their name. While Equifax already has a process to support the removal of fraudulent items from credit reports, we also support a new legal mechanism enabling victims to have negative information that resulted from trafficking removed from their credit reports. Congratulations to the co-sponsors of the bill. We look forward to working collaboratively with legislators." 

- Sue Hutchison, President, Equifax Canada
