Social Insurance Number (SIN)

In order to earn an income in Canada, an individual requires a Social Insurance Card (SIN). A SIN card is a 9-digit number that allows you to find employment opportunities as well as file your taxes. You can apply for your SIN card in person or by mail. It is highly recommended that you apply in person as the turnaround time is much quicker and you will be notified right away If you are missing any critical documents.
