Default When to apply SIN?

Hello all,

I am currently in the USA, and am going to Canada this weekend to land
for the first time. But I will come back to the States shortly after
my landing, and will move to Canada permanently in a year. (I haven't
finished my study here)

1. Should I apply for SIN now? Is it better to apply when I
permanently move to Canada next year? Or it doesn't matter?

2. I heard that IMM 1000 is valid only for 6 months to reenter Canada.
What should I do not to have a problem to reenter Canada in a year
from the landing? Is it possible for me to give them my friend's
address as my permanent address, so that they can mail my PR card to
his address? Or should I ask for some special document for the
reenterance?

Experts, please help me out. Thank you.

You can and should apply for SIN as well as your PR card when you land here. You can give your friend's address. Your friend can mail it to you in US. Remember you cannot reenter Canada without PR card.

Hope this helps
Bud.
