In Canada, the gov't are fairly explicit about use of the SIN:

" Some private-sector organizations may ask for your SIN. This practice
" is strongly discouraged, but it is not illegal.
"
" Here are examples of when you donât have to ...
" ..
" completing a job application before you get the job
" completing credit card application

I thought it was illegal for any company except an employer or bank
to require the SIN, though not to ask for it. Look like I was wrong;
you cannot prosecute them, only complain to the Privacy
Commissioner.
