Step 5 – Get Your Proof of Citizenship or Immigration Documents (if applicable)

♪ (music playing) ♪

Now, let's take a closer look at Step 5 in the Application Guide Getting Your Proof of Citizenship or Immigration Documents.

If you were born in Canada, or are not currently living in Canada, you do not need to get proof of citizenship or immigration documents.

If this is the case for you, you do not need to complete this step.

You can skip to Step 6 in the Guide.

If you were born outside of Canada and you are currently living in Canada, then you must include a photocopy of your official and valid immigration documents with your Record Suspension Application.

If you are in Canada with no immigration status, then you must confirm this by providing a photocopy of an official document with your Record Suspension Application.

Please note that expired documents are not accepted.

Also, if your documents expire while your application is being processed, you will need to provide an updated photocopy of a valid document, or your application will be delayed.

Remember, do not send original immigration documents with your application. Send photocopies only.
