Obtaining a Social Insurance Number (SIN)
Obtaining a Social Insurance Number (SIN) is one of the steps to take in the first few weeks following your arrival in Canada. This number is required to receive a salary, file your income tax return and obtain social benefits. During this webinar, Service Canada will present its different services, explain how to obtain a SIN and when and how to disclose it. Following the presentation, the speakers will be available to guide you through the online application for a SIN.
We recommend that those who wish to take advantage of the online help, scan the required documents beforehand (passport, study permit, proof of residence).
Please log in a few minutes before the start of the presentation to ensure that you do not miss anything.
