Social Insurance Number (SIN) Submission
Where can I enter my SIN for use on the T2202?
All KPU students (including Continuing Professional Studies students) who do not currently have a SIN on record have been assigned the Social Insurance Number (SIN) Submission - Action Item to submit their SIN. Please see the Action Item webpage for steps to complete this process. Access to the Action Item is via ONE.KPU by using the 'Submit SIN' tile or via the Registration application when you attempt to prepare, plan or register for an upcoming term.
What if I need to update my SIN?
If you have determined that the SIN on file is incorrect, please visit Student Enrolment Services in person to provide the correct number. Be sure to bring your Social Insurance Number (SIN) card or letter, and a valid piece of government issued photo ID (e.g. driver’s license, passport) so that we are able to update your number. If you are an employee of KPU, please contact Human Resources.
Where can I find more information about SIN?
Information about the Social Insurance Number can be found on the Government of Canada site here.
I am an International student, am I required to provide a SIN? Do I need a T2202?
If you have earned income in Canada and are filing a Canadian tax return, you are required to provide KPU your SIN. For the 2019 tax year, KPU is required to provide the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) with each student's SIN on the T2202. The T2202 tax receipt will allow you to use tuition paid as a tax deduction on your income tax return.
