Hi folks.
Revenue Canada contacted my parents by phone and disclosed my student loan and debt info to them, advising them that I was in default and that they would have to sell their house to pay off my loan.  Does anyone know if this is allowed. My parents are receiving daily phone calls from them and I do not live with my parents. I am 32 years old. I have read lots of posts that report that a spouse is not liable or responsible for a defaulted student loan but I am just wondering. Would I contact the Ombudsperson to get this to stop. Thanks.

Hi Mark. Thanks for your reply.
 
I called back the number that was on my parents call display and it was Revenue Canada. I had assumed it was a collection agency too. Have been dealing with this for 10 years.
 
Am wondering if they have a legal right to contact my family and would this be an Ombudsperson complaint that I make. I cant find anything on-line or on this website about this. I have had tons of collection agencies contact my entire family but this is the first time the government has called. Any words of wisdom. Thanks. Staci
