Default Social Insurance Card

I have a few questions, I hope someone can advise?

Way back in the late 80's early 90's I worked as roadie for various bands, this ment travlling around the world for months on end. I was lucky enough to work in Canada a few times.
Now, I am not sure how but I was issued with a plastic credit card with my Social Insurance Number, which I put in a folder at home and forgot about until a few weeks ago when we decided we wanted to immigrate to CA.

Questions;
Is this SIN number a life long number?
If it is, how will it help me in my application?
Can I find out more about it and where?

Thanks In Advance

Does it start with a "9" if so then it is for non residents, otherwise it is valid, probably should have been returned.

The above link has all the information and necessary forms for you. When you come here again and apply for a new SIN as a PR, you will be issued a new SIN which does not start with 9.

Good luck!
