Freeze / Thaw Credit

Hi All,

I know the US gives people the ability to freeze/thaw credit. I was wondering if we have the ability to do the same in Ontario? I remember hearing that a bill in place to get this rolling, did it ever turn into a law?
I have a few friends that were victims of fraud recently and the ability to freeze/thaw would be nice. I guess we are entering desperate times with all this record level debt!

Thanks in advance.

Nope. The most you can do is put a warning on, which creditors may or may not take into account when deciding to grant credit.
🏦 Banking: Alterna Bank (1.25%, No fees)
📈 Investing: National Bank Direct Brokerage
💳 Spending: Amex SimplyCash Preferred (2%), Brim Mastercard (1% forex, non-Amex)
📱 Mobile: Eastlink 10GB Rollover ($45/mth)
