SIN/work permit updates

Please remind staff and students to contact HR to update SIN numbers when they change.

16 November 2020

The U of A is legislatively required to collect social insurance numbers (SINs) and submit them to the Canada Revenue Agency for tax reporting purposes. Please remind staff and students to contact HR to update SIN numbers when they change.

Valid work/study permits are a mandatory condition of employment; faculty, staff and grad students cannot work with an expired permit. Loss of eligibility for employment in Canada, or a failure to provide confirmation of eligibility for employment in Canada (i.e. work permit and/or permanent or temporary residence visa) will require HR to render an appointment null and void. We will stop all payments due or payable to an employee without proof of valid work/study permit.
