CGFNS International is committed to respecting your privacy. You may visit our website and browse without giving CGFNS any personal information.

However, you will need to register and establish a password when you access the online application system or when you want to check the status of your file online or when you want to purchase products from our online store. When you choose to provide us with information about yourself, you can trust that we will act in a responsible manner towards that information.

Protecting your confidential information

Your CGFNS/ICHP ID number is used to identify your information and application(s) in the CGFNS International database. Please be very careful about giving your CGFNS ID number to other people. Your CGFNS ID number accesses your confidential application and status information. If you give your ID number to a relative, friend, employer, lawyer, recruiter, etc., that person may be able to access your confidential information.

In addition, by providing your ID number to someone else, that person will be able to go into the CGFNS online application system and create a user name and password using your ID number if you have not already done so. In the event this person creates a user name and password using your ID number without your consent or knowledge, you could find yourself unable to check the status of your own file. CGFNS allows only one user name and password to be created per applicant due to security concerns.

If you are having problems accessing your file or think that someone else may have created a user name and password using your CGFNS ID number without your permission, please contact the CGFNS Director of Advocacy, Quality Assurance and Staff Development.
