Typically 10 years from the date of closure. Nothing prevents the CRA(s) from deleting earlier though. I personally had an account report longer than the 10 years, but that was a good thing.

I have 3-4 accounts that are now closed. All in perfect standing from 1996-1999...... Still listed on all three reports.

Usually 10 years, but hey, just leave them be. Let them post as long as they want if they're good accts.

I have an account that has been closed for 18 years still reporting on TU but not on the others. I definitely am not going to say anything. Hopefully they will continue to report it on that one at least.
