A Social Insurance Number (SIN) is a 9-digit number that you need in order to work in Canada or to have access to government programs and benefits. If you are an international student and you are planning on working in Canada or filing income taxes, then you will need a SIN. The Centre for International Experience is partnering up with Service Canada to host a series of SIN Clinics at the St George Campus, allowing students to register to get their SIN issued on the spot. These clinics will be running in August and in September for three days at a time, for a total of six sessions. The clinics will be running from 9 am to 4 pm each day, and students will be registered in advance for a time-slot.
Be mindful that registration for each Clinic will close three business days prior to the Clinic, so make sure to register early!
