All appointment dates in the foreseeable future have been cancelled due to COVID-19. You can apply for your initial SIN, or an extension of your SIN, through Service Canada's website.
Service Canada representatives are in The Centre from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for a full week in January and August, and on the last Friday of every month, issuing and renewing SINs for Waterloo students. Drop by The Centre to book a same-day appointment or book online via Portal (starting at 8:00 a.m.). Don't forget to bring your original passport. If you are an international student, you need to also bring your original study permit and (if applicable) original work permit.
We recommend booking your same-day appointment early in the morning as appointment times fill up quickly.
