Hi I am going to come to Toronto area in July and will apply PR card as did not apply when we landed in 2015. Currently PR card wait time is more than 3 months . Since I can get a SIN number only after receiving my PR Card, is there anyway I can start work without the SIN and get paid for all the work done after I receive my SIN? So if I receive my PR card and SIN after 3 months- then I get paid for all of those 3 months after I receive my SIN. Is this considered legal ? If yes, will the companies be willing to hire without SIN and then waiting to pay for all the time worked after obtaining a SIN? Any suggestions.
