* Original Study Permit issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) that states the permit holder "may accept employment" or "may work" in Canada.
NOTE: If your Study Permit does not contain either of these statements, you must bring a study permit and a "confirmation to work off-campus" letter issued by IRCC (previously called Citizenship and Immigration Canada - CIC) prior to February 6, 2015.
If you have a valid Work Permit:
* Original Work Permit issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)

There is no fee to apply for a Social Insurance Number (SIN).
