WHAT IS A SIN NUMBER?  The Social Insurance Number (SIN) is used to manage various Canadian government programs. A SIN is assigned to a person living in Canada who wishes to work in Canada or receive benefits and services from government programs.  A branch of Service Canada is located in Kentville approximately 20 minutes from campus. We will travel together by taxis to Service Canada where you will be able to apply for a SIN number.  Information on SIN number can be found here:
