Canadian Member Login

The system uses the member’s zip code as the initial password to log on. Canadian members don’t have a five-digit zip code, and won’t be able to use their Canadian postal code as their initial password. If you are a Canadian member, use the “Forgot My Password” link to create a new password to enable login.

Don’t Forget to Change Your Password

The first time you log in to the D9 website, you should change your password to a more secure one. Click on the little “person” icon in the upper right-hand corner next to your “E” number and then select “Edit my Profile”. When you select “Generate Password” you’ll be faced with a daunting complex password, but don’t worry. You can change that to something that’s easier to remember. While you’re at it, change your “Friendly” name to be greeted by name rather than your “E” number.
