    Hey guys!

    My OWP just got approved today. Can I get a SIN without the physical work permit if I bring all the relevant reference numbers and photo ID? Or do I need to wait for it to arrive in the mail and go to Service Canada with it?


    EDIT - I just went to Service Canada and was told they CANNOT issue a new social insurance number without a physical copy of the work permit
  2. Yes, if you have an email or-letter saying Work permit was Approved you can bring it to a Service CANADA AND YOU WILL GET ONE.
  3. Perfect, thanks very much!
  4. Quick question: my owp approve and the email me today that it was sent to the mail. Can i go to service canada with the printed document in my email saying it was approve or i need a physical copy of my owp?
  5. Did you bring the printed email only?
