Account, Password, and Login Issues

There is an existing account with the same username

It might happen that, while trying to create a new account, you get a message stating that there is already an account with that username. This means that the email address you are using to create the new account is already being used for another account.

If you created an account some time ago, the account might still be active. Try logging in using the email address. If you can’t remember the password, follow the steps to reset your password.

If that doesn’t work, contact our Customer Contact Centre.

There is an existing account with the same name and date of birth

While creating your new account, when you log in and try to enter your date of birth, you might get a message stating that there is already an account with the same first name, last name, and date of birth. This could mean that you already have an account.

DO NOT create a new account with a different or incorrect date of birth. Contact our Customer Contact Centre.

I forget my username

Your username is the email address that you used to create the account. (It might not be the same email address that you currently use for communication purposes.)

If you can’t remember the username, try to recall what email address you used and enter it. If you need help, contact our Customer Contact Centre.

I forget my password

If you remember your username, but not the password, you can easily request a password reset.

  • In the sign-in dialog box, select Forgot password.

  • On the Forgot Password page, enter the email address that you used to create the account.

The Forgot Password page where you can request a password reset.
  • Select Reset Password.

You will receive an email with your existing username and a link to set a new password.

  • In the email message, select the link to reset your password.

Create a password that satisfies the following criteria:

  • Between 8 and 16 characters
  • At least three of the following:
    • a lowercase letter (a - z)
    • an uppercase letter (A - Z)
    • a number (0 - 9)
    • at least one of these special characters:

      @ # $ % ^ & * - _ + = [ ] { } | \ : ' , ? / ` ~ " ( ) ; .

  • Select Save.

If you don’t receive an email in your inbox, check your spam or junk folders. If the email is there, mark it as Not Junk or Safe to ensure that all future communications regarding your application reach your inbox.

If the email is not in your inbox or spam folder, contact our Customer Contact Centre.

My password doesn’t work

Make sure that you’ve entered your username and password correctly. Remember that the password is case-sensitive.

If you're still having trouble, you can use the Forgot password link to reset your password.
