Social Insurance Number: Requirement Changes

Effective April 30, 2013, the Canada Pension Plan (Social Insurance Numbers) regulations were amended. As a result, the physical Social Insurance Number (SIN) card no longer needs to be shown. Instead, departments must require employees to inform them of their SIN within three business days of when they start work. Please contact your Employment and Pay Advisor if you have any questions about this change.
