IAF Canada Unaffected by Equifax Security Breach
Immigrant Access Fund Canada would like to reassure its clients in relation to the reported security breach at Equifax, the large consumer credit reporting agency. IAF accesses information from Equifax to help assess individual loan applications, and IAF loan payment history may be kept by Equifax as part of an individual’s credit history.
At this time, Equifax is reporting no evidence of unauthorized access to any Canadian-originated files held in the consumer commercial credit rating database. Equifax has committed to keeping IAF informed if any new information becomes available, and IAF is committed to updating our clients as necessary.
Equifax customer service can be reached at 1-866-828-5961 for clients with additional questions.
