I am currently in credit counselling and I will be paid up next April after 4 years of re-payment.

Hi kheta13, I'm sorry I don't know the answer to this. Is an SIN similar to our Social Security Number here in the US?

I'll ask around and see if I can get some additional information for you.

You may want to try over on the Debt Support board, only because we have several canadians on that board who are more familiar with the canadian laws and how to approach things. Here in the US, there is a statute of limitations, which would have long since passed for this debt collector to collect on it, if in fact you did owe it. Secondly, they would have to show you proof that it is in fact your debt, which is sounds like, even if it may have been originally, you already paid it off.
