Hello,

I would like to apply for my two sons SIN since we want to open a RESP for them. The issue is we are not canadians and currently hold no status in Canada .

I use to live there as a student , then a worker before I moved back to my country. We currently hold (husband and I) visitor visas for Canada.

On service Canada website it's mention that if we are NOT canadian citizen we should provide proof of identity and right to work (work permit etc.) .

What could we do? submit an original of our birth certificate? or should I send my old work permit?

Thank you

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and questions with us.

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

It is correct that the Service Canada website states,

Parents


In addition to your child’s primary document, you will need to provide your SIN when applying at a Service Canada office.
If you don’t have a SIN or if you are applying by mail, you must also provide a primary document proving your identity.
Legal guardians



You can find the list of primary documents on the Service Canada website.

We will update you if we get any additional information regarding any other possible options.

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.
