Replace Your Record of Landing

Every person who lands in Canada as a permanent resident is given a Confirmation of Permanent Residence (previously known as a Record of Landing). The way this landing paper looks has changed many times, but it always shows the immigrant’s name, date of birth, and the date they landed in Canada as a permanent resident.

You need to show a copy of your IMM 1000 to get your Old Age Pension through Service Canada – if you were not born in Canada, your Old Age Pension Application will not be processed without a copy of your IMM 1000 because you must show that you have lived in Canada for at least 10 years to collect Old Age Pension.

Why You Need Your Record of Landing

(IMM 1000/COPR; Verification of Status)

What You Cannot Use Your Verification of Status For

  • Your Record of Landing (IMM 1000) or Verification of Status cannot be used as an ID. You will need additional identification for dealing with most federal, provincial and municipal government agencies.
  • For example, you need your passport rather than your Record of Landing, to apply for a new PR Card.
  • Another example: you cannot normally use your Record of Landing as your sole ID to apply for a Driver’s License.

What You Can Use Your Verification of Status For

  • Your Record of Landing (IMM 1000) or Verification of Status is required to process your OAS application as Service Canada needs to verify your date of landing in Canada.
  • You must submit your Record of Landing (IMM 1000) or Verification of Status as part of your application for Canadian Citizenship.
  • You can use your Record of Landing (IMM 100) or Verification of Status as a supplementary ID for your PR Card Renewal/Replacement application.

Common questions

The IMM 1000 is proof of your landing in Canada. It is used to prove your residence in Canada for Old Age Security (OAS) and is also used to help verify your eligibility for Canadian Citizenship.

If you are a Permanent Resident of Canada or a naturalized Citizen of Canada, you will eventually need to present your Record of Landing (IMM 1000) as proof your date of landing.

However, Citizenship and Immigration Canada no longer issues replacement Record of Landings, so you will have to apply for a Verification of Status. A Verification of Status is a document that confirms your date of landing and your status in Canada at that time.

If there is a mistake on your Record of Landing, you can get your IMM 1000 amended so that it is accurate.

If the mistake was made by CIC, then you can get this fixed free of charge.

However, if the mistake was on one of your documents when you landed, you will have to make sure your identity documents are correct and then you will have to pay for CIC to make the change and issue a new IMM 1000.
