Can I enter Canada with a visitor visa and then disappear?

Canada is one of the few countries in the world where it is almost impossible to disappear and live within the country due to its well-developed security system and the use of Social Insurance Number (SIN).

What is Social Insurance Number?

The Social Insurance Number (SIN) is a unique number that you use to identify yourself. It is a 9-digit number. You need this number to use some government programs. You need this number to work, drive, do housing, bank transactions, and study in Canada.

To get a Social Insurance Number (SIN), you have to fill out an application. You also need to collect some documents to submit with your application.

Disappearing in Canada seems impossible because without SIN, no housing, no job of any kind, no job search, no banking, no credit, no paycheque, no car purchase, no driver’s license, no schooling or training, no health care, no social services of any kind, shape or form, no possibility to ever become legitimized.

Any violation of SIN in Canada will get you arrested and deported sooner than you can imagine.

Then your employer, if you are found working, will also be arrested and subject to a jail term. This is one huge disincentive to hire anyone who doesn’t have a SIN number. Canadian officers are pretty good at ferreting out and denying these applications.
