I am about to send in my application for citizenship and cannot find my COPR form anywhere. I usually am good at saving things and I can't remember if I even got one. I have my U.S. passport with the IM-1 entry visa and everything else, ready to go. I became a PR in October 2010 when I landed in Sarnia. I do have the paper that came with my PR card but NO IMM 5292 or IMM 5688.
Can I just file the application an get a Verification of Status application going so I will have it for the swearing in ceremony? Or will my application be returned?

By the way, I just turned 65 so I would think the process would go smoothly and quickly because no test or proof of language skills is required. I'd hate to mess it up by botching the first application.
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
Thank you

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to the Application for Canadian citizenship under subsection 5(1) – Adults 18 years of age and older (CIT 0002) instruction guide,



Note: If any of the required documents are missing, or photocopies are not clear, your application will be returned to you.

Note: Additional documents may be required during the processing of your application.

1. Immigration documents

-Record of Landing (IMM 1000), or
-Confirmation of Permanent Residence (IMM 5292 or IMM 5688), and
-Permanent resident card (PRC) if you have one.
-Immigration documents that prove your status as a permanent resident (landed immigrant) of Canada.

Note: You must provide all of these documents in your possession. If any of these documents are no longer in your possession, please explain why.


As you may have noticed, the Application for Canadian citizenship under subsection 5(1) – Adults 18 years of age and older (CIT 0002) instruction guide states that if any of these documents are no longer in your possession, you will need to explain why.

You may want to find out some more information regarding the Application for a Verification of Status (VOS) or Replacement of an Immigration Document (IMM 5545) by contacting the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre directly.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
