IMM1000 Record of Landing / Confirmation of Permanent Residence Replacement Service
|Regular Processing||Urgent Processing|
|6 months||1 month|
If you came to Canada as a permanent resident and you have lost your IMM1000 given to you when you landed, then you can apply to replace this document.
An IMM1000 document is given to all permanent residents of Canada at the time of their landing regardless of age. For this reason, children’s landing documents are frequently lost or unavailable.
You are required to provide a copy of your IMM1000 when you apply for your Canadian Pension and/or Old Age Security to prove how long you have been in Canada. Certain countries also require their citizens to provide a copy of their IMM1000 when renewing their passport from inside Canada.
You no longer need a copy of your IMM1000 in order to apply for Canadian citizenship. However, you are required to bring the document with you at the time you take your oath of citizenship so that it can be stamped to indicate that you are no longer a permanent resident.
Our office will help you replace your IMM1000 or COPR. We will:
- Confirm your eligibility to apply for a replacement record of landing – if you have had certain criminal convictions you will not be able to submit the application
- Advise what documents are required for your application
- Complete the application form for you
- Write a cover letter explaining why your application should be approved
- Request urgent processing if applicable
- Act as your representative with the government of Canada
Only a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant, such as our partners, or a Canadian Immigration Lawyer or member of the Chambres de Notaires du Quebec can accept a fee to be your representative with IRCC
If you need your landing document immediately, then you may be eligible for urgent processing. The government is strict regarding who can apply for urgent replacement of their IMM1000. Situations which may qualify for urgency include:
- Document requested as part of Canada Pension application
- Document required for SIN number or employment
Contact us to see if you qualify for urgent processing.
