So long as he has a SIN then there should be no problem. I was never asked to produce any other proof of status.

When I landed they told me to take my passport with the confirmation of permanent residence sheet to a local Service Canada Center. You can find the closet one here.

They issue SIN and send out your card within 2 weeks.

Yes, it does make a difference, as far as I know.

Hmmmm, I've got a SIN and I'm just on a TWP.

I don't think you must have PR to get a SIN.

That's bullshit. As long as he has a ROLF or IMM1000(?) paper form then there is no issue proving his status without the PR card. Maybe try another Service Canada office?

Go back read the original post. The OP's friend was processed "In Canada" There is no COPR in that case, nor IMM 1000 (haven't been issued since June/02) He has to wait for the PR Card (30 days for delivery) before he has proof of status to get a PR card.

As to Humanist post s/he has a TWP and a SIN but the SIN will start with a 9 which means the employer has to see a TWP before hiring.

so in a nutshell, there is no way he can except this job then..as no PR card and Lord knows how much longer it could be, which is a shame as they are struggling and they really need him working....

So is there no official paperwork to confirm PR other than the card itself? It seems odd to add another delay for applicants before they can find a job. Legally is he not a PR? If he is then legally he can work surely, its just a question of administration.

Im thinking if the employer is convinced that the person has PR status, and that a SIN will follow( as explained here), that there is always the possibility that they can put all contributions into a holding account and sort it out later.

When I arrived with my work permit naturally I didnt have a SIN yet, but I worked for a while before the card / number arrived. I suppose its a bit different when its your employer that bought you over and took care of the paperwork, but it seems to me its worth appealing to the employer in this case, especially if there is some official looking letter to back you up.

For in Canada applications, you have to have the PR card.

List of documents required for a SIN card is at http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/s...ly/proof.shtml
