CRA paper copy

I'm sure I'm on the wrong forum but I see a bunch of numbers for TU, EX and EQ. Does anyone know the correct number for each to call and order paper reports? My last CA is about to fall off and I wanted a hard copy of each showing it in case it were to get reinserted

Re: CRA paper copy

What's wrong with just ordering an online version and printing it out? Same information is contained in the report regardless of the format.

Probably nothing but, my printer is not set up to run 40 plus pages for a credit life covering many many years. Also, I find things on the paper printouts that doesn't always show from the online version. In cleaning up my credit reports I have had lots of experience and the paper copy furnished by the bureaus worked well. Note, they paid for printing and mailing. I only paid returning the parts I disputed and using the USPS Tracking Envelopes (so they could not say they lost it).

It's been a LONG time since I bothered to request a paper copy... but I recall it having differently formatted/slightly more detailed info than the online options...

 

Might still be the case.

Indeed.

 

I think it is with EQ, you may still get the old report paper copy which was absolutely horrid (at the time my credit file wasn't all that large and it was bloody 40 pages of crap like payment history detail, basically 4 items in a table format for every single month... awkward).  It's different now online last time I checked it.

 

I did get an EX report last year and it seemed to be identical to the online version in terms of amount of detail.

 

TU I've never seen a paper copy of so I don't have a comparison.
