This question refers to the AnnualCreditReport.com service in the United States.
Similarly, is there a free online credit report service in Canada?

No, as far as I know, a free credit report is only available by mail. Here's a page with contact information for Equifax and TransUnion for ordering a credit report by mail.
Also note that anyone offering free online credit reports in Canada is lying through their teeth. There are a couple sites out there (e.g., canadafreecreditscore.ca, freecreditreportsincanada.ca) that offer a "free" online credit report in seconds, but that's just the hook line and sinker for signing up for a 7-day trial and then $29.95/mo afterward. Not sure of the details, but I generally avoid anything that's not Equifax or TransUnion for credit reports.
As far as we know, you can't get a free credit report online, like fideli said. But you can order a free credit report by phone or by mail.
For instructions on how to do both, see this blog post:
