Student Loan Data Breach Class Action
Class action litigation is being launched against the federal government seeking compensation for all Canadians whose personal information has been lost due to the loss of a portable hard drive containing personal information of more than half a million Canadians who received student loans.
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada has identified that the device went missing from an HRSDC office in Gatineau in early November. The hard drive had personal information on 583,000 Canadians who dealt with the Canada Student Loans program from 2000 to 2006. (Borrowers from Quebec are apparently not affected.)
