Hello,

Thank you for sharing your question with us.

You can find some detailed information on the including which documents and supporting documents are required on the Service Canada website in the Social Insurance Number section.

Here is an excerpt,

To apply for your SIN, to obtain a confirmation of your SIN or to amend your SIN record, simply gather all the required original documents and take them to the nearestService Canada office.


If everything is in order, you will get your SIN during your visit and you will not need to part with your documents.

Special measures are in place to accommodate individuals who cannot apply in person at a Service Canada office.



I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
