Protect yourself against identity theft
In 2016, the total financial cost of cybercrime in Canada was estimated at $1.9 billion with approximately 24,000 total police-reported cybercrimes.
This total cost has grown since then. In 2021 approximately 68,251 Canadians lost $231 million in extortion, phishing and romance scams alone. Statistics from the RCMP indicate that 1 in 6 Canadians are victimized by identity theft, Canada’s fastest growing crime.
