Planning to work in Canada? If so, you will need a Social Insurance Number (SIN). A SIN is a unique 9-digit number issued by Canadian Government arm ‘Service Canada' for tax purposes.
You will need a SIN before you can get a job in Canada so it's worth looking into this before you travel.
At taxback.com we can:
- Apply for your first SIN
- Apply for a replacement SIN card in the event that yours was lost or stolen
- Apply for a date change for your SIN expiry
- Update your records with Service Canada.
A SIN is needed by both Canadian residents and non residents in order to get a job, apply for a Canadian tax refund, or receive any government benefits.
