Mmhhhh??? Must read further.
"Imagine having to pay thousands of dollars just to get a card with your social insurance number.That's what some northerners say will be the result of recent federal changes to the application process.Ottawa recently altered the rules for first-time card applicants so that they can no longer apply for the card by mail.
Everyone has to show up in person at a Service Canada office, but only three of Nunavut's 28 communities have such offices. That means people in Grise (GREEZ) Fiord must travel to Iqaluit to get the card — a $6,600 airfare and a week's journey."
That cannot be right but alas sometimes the dollars are flying around in the background so fast that the FLASH himself would be in a tizzy! Not sure what went wrong with the paperwork behind this new application process but Canada is a whole remember?
Aww look how colorful our map is it's pretty!
