Important: SIN Information for Supervisors of International Students
International student employees must have both a valid study permit and a social insurance number. It has been brought to our attention that Service Canada requires an official employment contract from the department in order to issue a SIN to an international student employee. Prior to going to Service Canada to obtain a SIN, students must obtain an employment contract from Christine Niven, HR Assistant, in the Psychiatry Administration Office. This employment contract must be an original document on department letterhead. Requests for SIN without this contract are likely to be denied by Service Canada.
Please contact Steve at email@example.com if your new international student employee will require an employment contract or if you have any questions.
