Helping Your Student Get a Social Insurance Number

 

In Canada, no one can work without having a Social Insurance Number.  When the students you work with try to get a job, he/she will have to provide the Employer with a Social Insurance Number. The students you work with may need your help in getting a Social Insurance Number.  Any student who needs a Social Insurance Number can visit any Service Canada Office.  Below is a link to the Service Canada Offices in Saskatchewan.
