The protection of the personal information of employees is a priority for the Government of Canada. On October 19th, 2023, Brookfield Global Relocation Services (BGRS) informed the Government of Canada of a breach involving Government of Canada information held by BGRS and SIRVA Canada systems. The government has contracts with BGRS and SIRVA Canada to provide relocation support to employees. This message is intended to outline the steps the Government of Canada is taking to respond to this situation.

Upon learning about this incident, the government took immediate action to investigate the breach, which involves information held by the companies about current and former Government of Canada employees, members of the Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Mounted Police personnel. This incident was also reported to the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
