CBC News reports Canada Revenue Agency employees have accessed the tax information of thousands of citizens. Internal documents obtained by CBC News found CRA staff members examined the files of at least 10,000 citizens over a 10-month time frame. The documents show 14 privacy breaches were deemed significant enough to be reported to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner of Canada. CRA employees continue to illicitly access tax information despite the agency’s completion of the $10.2 million tech project, called the Enterprise Fraud Management Solution. The project was designed to track and stop unauthorized access to citizens’ data.
