Re: AHV/AVS number confidentiality?

View Post
This may have been discussed somewhere, but I can't seem to find an explicit statement on the confidentiality of one's AHV/AVS number anywhere... not even on the AHV website.

Would anyone know if this is a piece of information one should not be giving out lightly, as is the case with the social security numbers of other countries?
May I ask why? Is someone asking for your AHV/AVS number or do you want to gather these from a phishing scam and sell them on to the Nigerians ?

What does the letter say that your AVS card came with (I don't have it with me at work)?
