The Social Insurance Number (SIN) is a 9-digit number that you need to work in Canada or to have access to government programs and benefits.
A SIN is issued to one person only and it cannot legally be used by anyone else. This is extremely important as you are responsible for protecting your SIN.
If you have any documents containing your SIN number, be sure to store them in a safe place. DO NOT carry your SIN number with you.
There are multiple ways one can apply for a SIN number
Note: When applying, you MUST use original versions of documents. Photocopies will not be accepted.

Income taxes are a portion of your income that is paid to the government or deducted from your pay to help pay for government services such as education and policing.
It is recommended that all students (both domestic and international) file a tax return. By doing this, you may be entitled to money back if you work while you are in Canada.
Tuition is also tax-deductible, and your tuition credits can be used if you work in Canada after you graduate from university.
