If it was a SIN number beginning with 9 i.e. Temp one then you would need a new one.

So this may sound like a silly question but does that mean my credit history will be gone too?

Not connected. Credit reference agencies may well have a file on you, but if it's beyond 5 years (or less) it's likely to be deemed irrelevant. You could always check with them to see where you stand.

They issued us with new SINs at the airport, and found my old one from 1982, to my surprise. It had expired, of course. So I guessif your old SIN is still valid they will find at when you apply for a new one.
