Social Insurance Number (SIN)

The SIN is a nine digit number that you need to work in Canada. Without it, Queen's cannot pay you. You must have valid immigration status in Canada to apply for a SIN. There is no fee for the SIN.

To apply:

  • print out the application form
  • assemble supporting documents for proof of identity
  • apply at the Service Canada Centre, Frontenac Mall, 1300 Bath Road at Centennial Drive, Kingston, Mon-Fri 8:30am to 4pm

 If your documentation is in order, you'll get a Social Insurance Number on the spot. You will receive a "Confirmation of SIN" letter to show to your employer. Keep this letter in a safe place.
