Hi all

Is it not the case that TWP holders get SIN cards therefore you would need only to be legally resident not permanently resident to get one. I know its possibly pedantic but does seem relevant to the debate.

Cheers

Everyone who works in Canada needs a SIN, PR or TWP.

That was my understanding therefore SIN doesn't prove PR. Only PR card proves PR.

Of course non of this sheds any light on why the OP would want to know?

Temporary SINs start with a 9. So it's pretty easy to tell.

Not even a PR Card proves PR, although a valid one comes pretty much as close as possible to doing so.
