You must have opted out somewhere along the line. If you opt back in it should be removed. Not really sure why it would be causing you problems in your rebuilding though. Most people that are rebuilding want to be opted out.

Are you sure the fraud alert is gone? If so you can just opt back in. Should be updated in a few weeks at most. When I opted out it showed in a week that my file was blocked for promotional purposes. I got tierd of all the junk mail offers.

Under the statute, a fraud alert automatically invokes an opt-out.
Apparently, the CRA software does not remove that opt-out when the fraud alert is lifted.
Simply send each CRA a revocation of the opt-out.
