Replace Lost Landing Paper
If you have lost your Record of Landing (IMM 1000) or your Confirmation of Permanent Residence (IMM 5292 or IMM 5688) you will need to replace it with a Verification of Status. You need your Record of Landing or COPR (or a verification of Status) to claim your Old Age Security, but you can also use it as additional proof of your status in Canada.
In order to replace your Record of Landing or COPR, you will have to complete the IMM 5009 Application for Verification of Status (VOS) form and provide supporting documentation. Specifically, you need to complete Question 5 of Part B, where you explain what happened to your landing paper. You will have to pick one of the following options:
- Destroyed (i.e. shredded or burnt)
You will need to write about how you lost your landing paper in the field below. You should try to include how you think you lost it and try to include the last date you had it.
Example of Statement for Lost Landing Paper Application
Here is an example of the kind of thing you can write on your VOS application:
The last time I was saw my landing paper was sometime in Spring 2015 and I believe I may have thrown it out by accident while cleaning my house.
