Canadian Security Intelligence Service

CSIS is warning Canadians that fraudulent phone calls from persons claiming to be CSIS employees are currently being reported. If you receive a call asking for you social insurance number, please be aware that this is a scam. We encourage Canadians to report such instances to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Center by phone at 1-888-495-8501 or here:

Our vision: A safe, secure and prosperous Canada, through trusted intelligence and advice.

CSIS is at the forefront of Canada's national security system. Our role is to investigate activities suspected of constituting threats to the security of Canada and to report on these to the Government of Canada. We may also take measures to reduce threats to the security of Canada in accordance with well-defined legal requirements and Ministerial Direction.
