Hi everyone,
I renewed my work permit but silly me I forgot to renew my SIN card since that card has an expiry date corresponding to my old work permit.
So currently my SIN card has expired for more than 2 months. HR at my company didn't ask me about a new SIN card when I gave her copy of my new work permit so I completely forgot I have to renew my SIN card.
Now since it's already expired I'm not sure if I can renew or I have to apply for a new SIN card.
If I do need to apply for a new SIN #, how will that affect me when I file for tax - just renew my information with Revenue Canada???

Please help....thanks a lot!!!!

What I know is, the SIN card that u have will be ur SIN card forever unless you will be a permanent resident here in Canada they will give you a new one.  just renew your SIN. you don't need to apply for a new one. You can renew ur SIN asap at any service canada office, u'll get it by mail after  a week, then there will be no problem at all in filing tax since it's the same SIN.

don't worry, my friend forgot to renew his SIN like about a year! so 2 months won't hurt.

Visit Service Canada and get your card renewed! Your number is not going to chage and therefore no effect for your employment! They will only issue a new card till the last day as it shows on your new work permit.
