Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

We can appreciate that you would be concerned about this situation.

According to the Service Canada website in the Social Insurance Number – Overview section,

Service Canada is now issuing SINs in paper format (confirmation of SIN letter). Production of the plastic SIN card has stopped, however, SIN cards that are not expired and are currently in circulation can still be used.


You may want to contact the Social Insurance Number Program directly for some information.


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.
