    Not that I know of , they'll just know that you stopped working around which time, that's about it I think. I never got fired before , laid off at the most.

    I doubt it. The Social Insurance Number is a way for the government to track you and whatnot. There isn't a bureau, like a credit bureau, where an employer can call up and run some kind of history check.

    In fact, if there was I figure it'd be a huge breach, since a SIN is confidential and should only be given out for matters of financial nature, such as paying you your wages and registering you with the CCRA for taxation purposes.

    If your SIN got into the wrong hands you could fall victim to identity theft.
