    Did your employer sponsor you to work in the US? If so, you can apply for social security number.

        I don't know the details of your exact arrangements with your employer. But in general, if you are working in USA, you would get paid in US and you would pay taxes in US. And for that, you would need social security number.

            If you are age 18 or older, you can apply for a social security number in your home country when you apply for an immigrant visa with the U.S. Department of State. The U.S. government will use the same information that you give to apply for an immigrant visa to apply for an SSN.

              Yes, you can. All you need is to fill out form SS-5 and take it to the Social Security Administration Office.
              You'll need to show your Canadian passport, Visa I, I-94 with authorization to be in the country, and a letter of your employer showing that you need the SSN for tax purposes.

              Lastly, your Social Security Card might be provided "restricted," by showing the message: "VALID FOR WORK ONLY WITH DHS AUTHORIZATION." This means that you can accept employment only for the foreign media company that requested Visa I for you.

              Although, a restricted SSN doesn't allow to work for any US employer, you can use your SSN for opening bank accounts, build US credit, get a credit card, and other things that require a SSN. Also, there might be ways to unrestrict the Social Security Card as well.
