our experiences how we got the essentials you know our sin our phone our bank account ttt student permit and you know hopefully after this series you’ll have a better understanding of what you need to do here when you land here so it’s a four part series and uh let’s get to it hey everyone we’re ben daniel and in this video we’ll tell you how to get your sin so what’s in it’s basically your social insurance number which is a nine digit number that you need to work in canada or to have access to government programs and benefits and it’s used for income reporting purposes so you have to make sure to keep your sin protected at all times because this is very important because if you lose this there might be some identity theft or stuff so make sure it’s with you all the time and make sure only you know about it so bail will tell you how to actually get yourself so there are three ways you can apply for your social insurance number um first is in person um which is how we did it we went to the service canada office personally to get it then second one is online through online application and third one is by mail by sending your application through mail so the fastest way to get your sin is to go to service canada because you’ll be able to get it on the spot most of the time um especially before covid so right now i think you have to book an appointment before you can go to service canada so if you’re applying personally here are the things that you have to bring so a valid original primary document to prove your identity and legal status in canada a primary document can be a work permit or study permit issued by the ircc and second you need a valid original secondary document to confirm your identity a secondary document can be a passport canadian or foreign a provincial or territorial id card or driver’s license and any other government issued id so in our experience it took us less than 30 minutes in total to get our sin but maybe we just got lucky because there wasn’t much um queue during the time that we went and the branch wasn’t that busy so right now ontario is slowly easing up it’s go with restriction and more branches of service canada is opening up so check with your nearest service canada if they accommodate walk-in or if you have to set an appointment with them through their eservice canada service request form so we’re gonna put down the link below which you can click to book an appointment moving on getting your send via online or mail will take some time as a process takes around 20 days so to apply it online you have to go to canada.ta and look for apply online for a sin then you’ll have to fill up an online application form the requirements for in-person and online are the same so work or study permit and foreign passport there’s only one additional requirement which is proof of address which is an id or document that confirms the address that you indicated on the online application form and if you apply for a sin online or by mail and your application meets requirements you will receive a letter with your send by mail within 20 business days from the date of application yes it’s correct yeah it’s quite fast because when we renewed our scene after getting our pgwp um after [Music] sending our application online um we got ours renewed sin after like seven days so yeah but the most efficient way is of course to go to service canada because you can get your sin on the day itself same day so but it’s another option if you don’t want to if you don’t want to personally go to service canada so then lastly applying by mail so this means you will have to um print out the application form and and um submit original your original work permit or study permit together with your passport or any identification card that you want to use through mail so um take note that you have to mail the application form together with your original um documents so after they finished processing your sin and they will return all your documents via mail as well so just be cautious um and make sure to send your documents to the correct address to make sure that your documents will not get lost or something because of course you will send your original word perimeter study permit and your original document so you have to be you have to make sure that you’re gonna send it to the correct address so there won’t be any issues so yeah so um things that you have to take note is that applying for your social insurance number here in canada is free so you don’t have to pay anything or shell out any money second is a valid sin alone does not automatically make you eligible to work on or off campus so you must tell me the eligibility requirements in order to legally work students in degree pro programs do not need a work permit to work off campus yes so that’s how you can get your social insurance number here in canada and that is one of the most important things that you have to um get upon arriving because you will need it for almost everything yeah and again don’t take our word for it make sure to check the actual uh the actual yeah the website website go to canada.ca.ca and make sure to double check everything
